The BBC has gone bananas - and banned the humble fruit at its new £1 bn headquarters after a staffer said the fruit could killer her.

Posters have been put up warning colleagues not to eat them at work. The ban was requested by a journalist who said she could suffer a fatal reaction if she came into contact with a banana. Workers at the new HQ decided to hang up posters of a banana with a giant cross through it.

It means staff are forbidden from unpeeling or consuming the fruit anywhere near others, the report said.
