'World in Action' editor steps down

WITH AN embarrassing sense of timing, Granada Television announced yesterday that the editor of World in Action is stepping down - the day after the programme lost a pounds 1m libel case against Marks & Spencer.

But the station insisted that Steve Boulton's decision to leave ITV's flagship documentary had nothing to do with what happened in the High Court. "It is an unfortunate coincidence but it has absolutely no connection with that ruling," said Charles Tremayne, controller of factual programmes.
