Not noticed this before (usually in work!) a centre-aligned Breaking News strap, wipes up from the bottom like the other graphics...
Just with this in mind, and Victoria Derbyshire's graphics as a whole - do we think they've been designed with a 'new' BBC News graphics template? The mammoth gap between the current ticker and the new VD straps has always bugged me - but if you think that it's there because the new graphics will fill the space, it kind of makes sense... little mock up of what I mean below.
2 minute job there, so excuse that, but I think that might make some sense? Plus I remember seeing somewhere that a flipper was being discussed instead of a ticker.
That does seem to take up an awful lot of the screen, so I’m hoping it’s just that they’re just moving the ticker/flipper up screen a bit.
