Viewers of a 24-hour news channel got a shock in Sweden - when an erotic film was screened in the background.

It happened during a sober discussion about Russia's support for Syria on TV4 News, reports The Mirror.

As two journalists talked about Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, the pornographic film began playing on a monitor in the background.

Danyal EK, a 23-year-old student who was watching at the time, told The Local: "At first I realised I was looking at a naked woman and it quickly became clear she was having sex.

"It didn't take long before I realized it was a porn film. The image wasn't exactly in focus, but it wasn't hard to figure out what was going on."

The blue movie was shown for 10 minutes before the plug was pulled.

A spokesman for the TV channel said: "Put simply, it's c**p that it happened. We're going to do everything we can so that it doesn't happen again."
