And now here is the news.

BBC Radio 4 has apologised after it broadcast the wrong shipping forecast today, saying "such mistakes do not meet the standards our listeners rightly expect".

Radio 4 appeared to mistakenly repeat Monday morning's forecast in the 5.20am shipping forecast slot today.

The error came just days after the station broadcast the wrong edition of topical comedy show, The Now Show, repeating the previous week's programme by mistake.

A Radio 4 spokesman said: "The wrong shipping forecast was issued today at 5.20am. The mistake was acknowledged and highlighted to listeners several times during the morning and we apologise again for the mistake.
