A technical glitch on the BBC News Channel overnight resulted in a presenter changeover going out on air. Ben Bland was moving into position in preparation for the 5am News Briefing programme when the studio’s output was cut up on air. The error was quickly corrected, with the appearance of a generic BBC News logo caption.

Here’s a clip of the incident, captured by YouTuber OscarPlymouth:
