Mouse causes storm in radio weather

A weather presenter was forced to interrupt a live broadcast when a mouse appeared in her studio.

Kate Kinsella was reading a bulletin for BBC Three Counties radio when she shrieked as she spotted the rodent.

During the forecast, she said: "We could be seeing gale force winds from time to time through the afternoon. The good news is it will start...ahh! Sorry, there's a mouse just run past me in my studio."

Asked by host Iain Lee if she was ok, she replied: "Yes I'm fine, it's just the unique way in which this studio is run, there was a mouse."

Kinsella told listeners the tiny creature had walked in front of her and then on to some of the studio's cables.

"It's quite sweet actually, bless it," she added.

The shocked presenter finished by saying: "That is your forecast, along with the mouse."

After the morning show, which is broadcast to Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire, Kinsella wrote on Twitter: "Just like to add that both myself and the mouse survived the incident!!!"
