Oops! BBC worker watches R-rated scene on screen in back of live newscast

Someone at the BBC is in trouble with the boss. During a news broadcast where anchor Sophie Raworth is talking about the game of cricket, a more interesting video is playing on a screen in the background, watched by a BBC employee who was slumped in a chair wearing headphones. A half-dressed woman peels off her shirt, and then proceeds to take off her black bra. The BBC's 3.8 million viewers got an eyeful – if they happened to look towards the left of the screen.

According to The Sun:

"The employee is on borrowed time when bosses catch up with him. You can't get away with this sort of stuff anymore."

Andrew Allison, of The Freedom Association, which wants to axe the BBC license fee, said: "I'm surprised the BBC hasn't got internet filters to stop staff doing this sort of thing. I bet they get them now."

Bemused viewers took to social media. Zane Jawad tweeted: "@BBCNews why is there a porn video playing behind one of your news anchors during a report?"
