I've never heard of such a lame excuse in my life.

Most peculiar.
It came back suddnly later in the news. I was not around to see if the
plus 1 had it as well.

Yes. C4 News named who they thought was the name of yesterday's
Westminster attacker during the programme. It turned out not
to be that person, because he's still alive and well in prison.

To avoid libel etc C4 blacked out the +1 repeat, except they cocked up,
because they didn't black out the very beginning of the programme, and he
was mentioned there too. Doh !

Please replace invalid and invalid with gmx and net to reply.
