Football Focus Pundit Martin Keown Told To 'Get Hose Out' After Fire Alarm Goes Off Live On BBC (VIDEO)

BBC1's flagship Football Focus programme was plunged into panic after an alarm went off during a live broadcast.

Sirens started as former Arsenal player and now pundit Martin Keown discussed the day's pressing football issues.

After battling on for a few moments he and presenter Dan Walker laughed.

It was suggested Keown 'got his hose out.'

Producers cut to a pre-prepared feature before cutting back to the studio.

Walker joked: "Don't panic anybody. Proof at least that football focus is live.'

Observers were quick to react on Twitter - with most questioning the new Salford Quays studios.
