GMTV was played out by LNN, the same as Carlton and LWT. So their TX suite's output would just have presumably just played the end of GMTV, a few seconds of black then the start of Carlton. That is what we saw in London.
So presumably either Meridian weren't quick enough to opt out/switch away or LNN for whatever reason didn't leave as much gap. The 1 second doesn't seem that much to me
It could be that they were getting it by an unusual route and normally the output of GMTV sent to them was clean of London output, but on that day it wasn't.
It was only a few weeks into the new arrangement so I imagine there would have been a few teething troubles
