A BBC presenter was caught out making an unfortunate gaffe as he read the news on Tuesday night.
The 49-year-old delivered the rest of the report without incident, though, the gaffe was noticed by several eagle-eyed denizens of Twitter.
Sooo. I guess everyone's just going to ignore the fact that Clive Myrie made a throat cutting gesture during a beheading story...-- Victoria. (@captainvix) October 23, 2013
Myrie's gaffe comes after Simon McCoy expertly rode out a live TV fail during his own news segment last month.
McCoy baffled viewers when he faced the cameras armed with a stack of photocopier paper - after mistaking it for an iPad.
"In the rush of live news, he didn't have an opportunity to swap the items, so simply went with it," the BBC explained after the mix-up raised confused eyebrows.
