Staff at ITV were in hysterics when their boss became trapped in a glass lift — that wouldn’t stop going up and down.
A video of unlucky programme editor Mike Rigby shows the exasperated journalist with his hands together as if to praying to a higher power for the ordeal to end.
The hilarious footage was captured by ITV political correspondent Paul Brand, who shared it on hisTwitter account.
He wrote: ‘Our Programme Editor Mike Rigby has currently been going up and down in a lift for half an hour with no sign of escape.

‘The bulletin tonight could be sparse without his heavy LIFTing #upanddown.’
‘Lift contractor has been called out. On a serious note, we are trying to set him free, I promise!’
He later added: ‘Almost an hour now… Hope he doesn’t need a wee.’ and shortly after: ‘BREAKING NEWS: Mike has been freed!
‘He does not wish to speak to the media at this time and asks that his privacy be respected. #freeMike.’
