The weaknesses of trial by jury, the rights and wrongs of large benefits payments, the reported exodus of white Brits from London and the government's sale of 4G mobile phone licences were alldiscussedas BBC Question Time came to St Paul's.

Chaired by David Dimbleby, his guests were Labour MP, Diane Abbott; former Deputy Prime Minister, Lord Heseltine; Business Secretary, Vince Cable; columnist and author, Peter Hitchens; and St Paul's former Canon Chancellor, GIles Fraser.

As well as being watched by millions around the UK on television, the programme was also being followed by thousands using social media site Twitter. Using the hash tag #bbcqt, user were able to comment on what they were watching and debate what was being said.

But perhaps the most touching moment of the show came right at the end in the programme's credits, where Sir Christopher Wren was given a nod for set design. This briefly saw him become one of the most talked about subjects on Twitter as the show ended.
