A joke it was announced so late in the day in Parliament. They could do with say a daily 5pm briefing for such announcements, to hit the local news bulletins from 6pm.

Did Leicester ever get a local TV station?
Stay Local. Stay Safe. Stay Alive.

If this happened in say, I don't know, London for example it would have got exactly that.

At least it made top story on the BBC News at Ten. Didn't even make the headlines at the 11pm junction on the BBC News Channel. Back to Sky again.
Stay alert. Control the virus. Save lives.

No mention of Leicester on BBC News at 23.00.

When the US version of CNN is simulcast on the international channel, US news unashamedly takes centre stage. This is annoying to international viewers.
When the UK and World versions of BBC News are simulcast, it feels as if the BBC are scared to and feel guilty if they mention UK stories, such as Leicester. This is annoying for UK viewers.

As someone who lives in Leicester I'm annoyed with the BBC that they cut away from the House of Commons as Matt Hancock was answering questions to focus on global developments. Switched straight over to Sky News.


BBC can't even spell the city's name correctly (lower thirds graphics)





Leaning? Somebody prop them up, quick.

If only there was a public service broadcaster in the UK that could provide a news service 24/7 with all the latest news and analysis for the UK.

Clearly if this was London it would be the first headline. However as somebody who lives in an area that may or may not be covered by these restrictions it is worrying to see that local business owners have had to turn to facebook to try and determine whether or not they are able to open tomorrow morning as the government haven't actually bothered to publish a full list of areas that are covered by these restrictions and broadcasters haven't bothered pushing for such a list to be published.

the Commons statement was originally scheduled for 5pm, but was inexplicably delayed.

The BBC have more than enough people in the US to put out something, even if it'll rely on lower profile people than normal and possibly coverage from a lower than normal number of states. I'd imagine that the TV coverage would be led by Katty Kay and Jon Sopel with the radio either being handled by lower profile presenters or from the UK.


If we have a US GP couldn't they leave Jennie Gow, Lee McKenzie and Jack Nicholls out there for the elections? Who are all journalists in their own right?

No.

That live report from Leicester on the One was like a comedy sketch with loads of random people walking past in the background, funny characters, delivery bikes, and then to top it all a bloke on a mobility scooter at the end.

Although it did a good job of showing what the problem in containing the virus in the city is. Why on earth were so many idiots in a city centre where everything is closed.

😠


And now the lower thirds graphics were saying 'Stanstead' instead of 'Stansted' (news re EasyJet)

After this and the 'Liecester' error last night, I wouldn't be surprised if they write 'Lundun' next...?
