THE BBC is set to move jobs to Glasgow as part of a drive to better reflect the UK. 

Members of the BBC's Technology team were informed that their jobs would be moving to the media giant's Glasgow home at Pacific Quay. Correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones tweeted about his concerns of having to uproot his family to make the move earlier today. 

It comes as part of the Beeb's "biggest change in decades" as it aims to relocate key roles and departments outwith London to cities such as Leeds, Birmingham and Salford.

Laying out the "top to bottom" changes, new director general Tim Davie said: "Our mission must be to deliver for the whole of the UK and ensure every household gets value from the BBC.

"These plans will get us closer to audiences, create jobs and investment, and develop and nurture new talent."

The broadcaster also outlined other plans including: two new soap opera style dramas, current affairs programmes such as Newsnight being presented from different locations across the UK, more investment in recruiting a new generation of reporters and apprentices and a commitment to ensuring a majority of BBC television programmes are made outside of London.
