After the end of the weather at 6:59:40 ish they played the 30 sec bus today promo, then, after 7:00 (according to the clock and teletext, etc.) played another promo, then went to the headlines at about 30 seconds past. After the promo there was just the thunderclap and Chris Lowe said 'headlines at 7'.

Was there a problem in the changeover in the presenters or something so they delayed it?
