Wow. The LWT ident has to be a reference that is lost of most of their fanbase?

To be fair, police messages on BBC NI and UTV during the Troubles employed the same tactic...

Are there any videos of these warnings? I'd quite like to see them.

Here's the only one I remember seeing on UTV warning of "incendiary devices". Someone in the comments says there was also one on the BBC called a "POLICE MESSAGE".

Though of course they were a bit more important and needed to be noticeable compared to an apology that may well have been more disruptive than what they're apologising for!

Sad news emerging tonight...





Update: It's happening as the staff member behind the account is relocating.

Still a real shame the social media feeds won't be sustained.

Got them to clarify, the accounts aren't being deleted, they just won't be updated.

The social media feed was run by Rob Milburn, an ITV employee who is moving from Channel to Wales.

Hark, is that another archive-plundering series with Arfon Haines Davies I see before me?
