Press AssociationPress Association 15/10/2016

BBC presenters have apologised after the broadcaster's breakfast program showed footage of a gorilla instead of Scotland's First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon.

Breakfast host Naga Munchetty was telling viewers they would be joined by Sturgeon later in the program when footage of the silverback which escaped from its enclosure at London Zoo was shown on screen.

Co-presenter Charlie Stayt quickly apologised for the gaffe. He said: "I'm sorry, we have very clearly run the wrong pictures over that particular sequence, my apologies there. The story we will be talking about later, as you probably guessed by the pictures, is about the escaped gorilla at London Zoo."possession of wildlife.
