Mouse interrupts weather forecast

A BBC 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.

"It's quite sweet actually, bless it," she added. The presenter finished by saying: "That is your forecast, along with the mouse."
