Mouse interrupts BBC weather forecast

A weather presenter was forced to interrupt a live broadcast when a mouse appeared in her studio.

Kate Kinsella was reading a bulletin for BBC Three Counties radio, which is broadcast to Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire, when she shrieked as she spotted the rodent.

During the forecast, she said: "We could be seeing gale force winds from time to time through the afternoon. The good news is it will start ... ahh! Sorry, there's a mouse just run past me in my studio."

Asked by host Iain Lee if she was okay, she replied: "Yes I'm fine, it's just the unique way in which this studio is run, there was a mouse." Kinsella told listeners the tiny creature had walked in front of her and then on to some of the studio's cables. "It's quite sweet actually, bless it," she added. The presenter finished by saying: "That is your forecast, along with the mouse."
