Just to let you know there has just been a News Report on BBC One at 11.15 following the film with the latest on the major disturbances on the streets of Bradford tonight - just miles away from me here.

It was presented by Anna Jones from the News24 studio and I expect was simulcast.

Yes - it went out on News 24 as well.

Apparently there was a spelling mistake in the caption at the end which said something like 'Continuous coverage through the night on BBC News 24.' I think coverage was spelt wrong!

Anyone capture it? What titles were used, if any?

No titles on One - straight after the end credits of the movie there was the 'News Report' static graphic and the announcer said something like:

'In a few moments Tv to Go but first on BBC One a News Report with Anna Jones.' and they just faded out at the end.

I thought they would do a news report as things got much worse in Bradford after the late news which is earlyish at the moment on a Sat at 8.45. A good decision by the BBC me thinks!

And on the subject of the Bradford Riots last night there will be a Look North special at 1pm on BBC Two in place of North of Westminster according to BBC Bradford Online.

I said at the time it must of seemed odd to N24 viewere, saying continious coverage over on news24.
Also did anyone hear the reporter on five live, just before Up all night, he sounded very scared at the burning of the labour club.
