BBC News Channel’s staff have been accused of wasting taxpayers’ cash after workers photographed sleeping on the job.
The Sun’s splash on Thursday shows BBC News journalists apparently sleeping while at work.
The paper says the napping night-shifters were snapped by an angry colleague on the BBC News Channel. “It’s very difficult to work with someone snoring next to you,” said the furious employee.
You can see many photos on The Sun’s website, but, like with most stories these days, Twitter has had a field day with this..

Lights lowered. Speakers off. Pillow plumped. Ready for work.
