'BBC removes Trafigura video after legal threat'

BBC 2's Newsnight has apparently removed a video of its feature on the alleged dumping of toxic waste by Trafigura from its website after legal threats from the oil firm and Carter-Ruck, the New Statesman blog claims.
It says bloggers have attempted to evade the gag by posting a YouTube video of the feature and have attacked BBC executives for "caving in" to Carter-Ruck.
The Statesman says: "This latest development confirms the urgent need for the government to call time on London's status as the libel capital of the world."
