The BBC accidentally cut to a regional presenter who looked very unimpressed by a report on the ‘tensions at Number 10’. 

The video shows Louise Priest, the BBC Look East presenter, sighing heavily after the screen cut to her instead of going to the political correspondent. 

Newsreader Jane Hill was suppose to be cutting to a reporter to cover the internal tensions at Downing Street following Dominic Cummings plans to resign.

Social media users have taken to Twitter after the amusing video was posted online following the news bulletin on November 13. 

One user commented: ‘BBC One accidentally cutting to a local news presenter looking unimpressed about the news in Downing Street is all of us’.

Another wrote: ‘She sums up the mood of the nation.’

One said: ‘Me before every Zoom call starts.’  

Instead of cutting to political correspondent Jonathan Blake, they showed the very unimpressed looking presenter, who stares blankly at the screen.

It appears that the Norwich studio cut to her too early and the presenter sighs heavily and drops her shoulders before beginning to read her bulletin.   

The presenter first joined BBC Radio Norfolk in the early 80s as a young news reporter, before becoming a news producer and occasional presenter.

She first started presenting BBC Look East in 1987 and stayed for three years before moving to Essex, working with both BBC Look East and BBC Essex.

In 1993 she began to present BBC Radio Norfolk’s breakfast programme for six years before returning to BBC Look East as a programme planner and presenter. 

The BBC have been approached for comment.
