    I'm using this article from the BBC website
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-25744955

    And for my reference list I've used this:

    Treanor, S. 2014. Banking bonuses: How much do they matter?, BBC News. [Online]. [Accessed 28th June 2014]. Available from:
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-25744955

    However in the main body of my essay I'm using a quote from that article but it's been quoted by John Purcell:
    "If the likes of RBS were to be ultimately damaged by high-performing people leaving, that ultimately damages us on the whole as an economy."

    How do I cite this in my essay, do I use the author of the article or Purcell? Do I have to make a new reference in my reference list using Purcell's name and then the article?

    If the entire original quote appears in the article, then you can use that article as your source. Only if you are quoting something from the Purcell piece, or using his analysis, do you need to include him.

    According to the version of Harvard in use at my current uni, the in-text reference for the direct quote by Purcell would be:

    (Purcell in Treanor 2014)

    The full reference in the bibliography would remain as you already have it, under Treanor. You wouldn't reference Purcell in the bibliography.
