Emma Raducanu says she quit her job at the BBC because she believed her then employer were keeping her in the dark about what was going on

Emma Raducanu is claiming that she was wrongly told to leave her job with the BBC and has called on the broadcaster to tell her how it treats its female staff.

The 35-year-old Romanian-born journalist told The Daily Star that she left her job at the BBC News website after getting assurances from her bosses that she would not be fired and would be given the opportunity to take time off.

But, just hours after making those promises, Raducanu says she was fired and told by her boss to leave the office immediately.

The reporter’s former employer has denied the accusation and says Raducanu got the same treatment as any other female employee leaving the company.

She said: ‘I was fired for leaving. I did not leave because I was being asked to leave. I leave because I believed that my job was threatened.

‘It was just after the first round of redundancies. There was no reason for it at all except the fact that it was a male colleague who had been fired. It was completely unjustified.’

Raducanu – who is British and Romanian – has started a crowdfunding campaign to pay off her redundancy.
