BBC News Channel temporarily diverts to BBC World News

The BBC News Channel took an unexpected diversion to BBC World News at 4.30pm today.

Shortly before 4.30pm, presenter Jane Hill handed to the weather as usual. After some trails, the BBC News Channel took a news programme from BBC World News, rather than returning to Jane Hill in Studio E.

The screens in Studio C initially showed BBC World News branding.

There was no explanation for the unexpected appearance of BBC World News output. Some viewers reported autocue issues during the 4pm Studio E broadcast.
