BBC News in chaos as studio turned into 'morning rave' by technical blunder | The Sun

BBC NEWS was put into chaos as the studio was turned into a 'morning rave'.

Viewers expect to tune into BBC Breakfast to be woken up in a calm way and to hear the news from around the country.

However, despite the publicly funded corporation's vast resources, it seems local bulletins don't always go to plan on BBC One.

The BBC Look North studio was rocked by a serious technical blunder which left the presenter suffering for the "rest of the day."

The top lighting panel would usually be a neutral colour to give the studio added atmosphere, and the shade would be changed for certain special programmes.

However, a behind-the-scenes video shows the apparatus suffered a serious malfunction.

Out of nowhere it started flashing all different colours in quick succession, leaving what would look more like the effect of lights in a nightclub.

There is even guidance by the industry's regulator OFCOM on flashing images and how to limit them as some viewers could be in danger of suffering from seizures.

Claire Frisby took to the airwaves where she was heard saying: "Hello, welcome to Look North Breakfast, thanks for joining us.

"Apologies for the flashing disco lights."

Weather presenter Abbie Dewhurst posted the behind-the-scenes clip of her colleague trying to stay calm amid the commotion as she wrote: "It's Thursday but the BBC Look North studio very much thinks it's Friday 😂😭.

Slight technical issue this morning handled with perfection by the ever professional @ClareFrisby 💃🏼🕺🏼."

The presenter also took to social media herself, where she confirmed that viewers would only have been minimally disturbed because of clever camera angles

However she admitted that this incident will probably leave her eyes with lasting effects.

She tweeted: "Always rehearse…! This didn’t go to air.

"We cut tight to reduce the visual disturbance to the ⁦@looknorthBBC @BBCLookNorth breakfast viewer… but I’ve got disco lights in my 👀 for the rest of the day!"
