It's not so much a formatting flaw as editorial policy. I work with this all day, every day, although not for the BBC. It's painful, to say the least, because frontline staff do care a lot. So much time is spent on relatively technical story package creation and filing tasks, rather than the actual content. The whole thing is expected to be done and online within minutes, unchecked. My publication doesn't even have permission to use agency pictures because of the cost involved.
