VIDEO: BBC’s Simon McCoy mistakes pack of paper for his tablet
A video of a BBC broadcaster has gone viral after he went on air clutching a pack of paper instead of his iPad.
Simon McCoy accidentally picked up a refill pack of A4 paper before going on camera during a Wednesday broadcast. McCoy carried on with the report with the paper clearly visible in his hands.
A BBC spokesperson later released this statement:
“This morning as Simon McCoy was preparing to introduce this story, instead of picking up his tablet to hold as he went to air, he mistakenly picked up a ream of paper that was sitting next to it.
“In the rush of live news, he didn’t have an opportunity to swap the items, so simply went with it.”
