The ticker appears to be blank, and in Breaking News red - I presume it's not the usual strap that's used to cover over recordings, as that's usually slightly taller.
EDIT: maybe I'm wrong - there's a thin black bar after the clock, so perhaps it is the blanking strap.
EDIT 2: Checking iPlayer rewind, the ticker was removed at around 2:05 (and possibly for a while before that) because it was repeating headlines in a row.
EDIT 3: Ticker appeared for a minute or so at 3am, before being removed again.
