Fiona Bruce flagged down police car in order to host BBC's News at Six on time

The BBC team chose to move across central London to its Millbank studio after a technical glitch at Broadcasting House.

Fiona persuaded a cop to help her after finding traffic at a near standstill due to a demonstration.

Home editor Mark Easton tweeted snaps of his and Fiona’s frantic trip.

He declared: “Now in a police car being escorted through the demo. BBC News is at stake!”

And later he added: "Policeman Josh has saved the day! BBC News should be on air!!"

Viewers were left baffled when BBC News's Afternoon Live programme showed repeated programming from an hour beforehand, along with a small "recorded" banner visible on the top left of the screen.

Fiona, 54, said: “I’ve never had to do that before in 19 years of presenting the news.”

But some social media users blasted it as a waste of police resources.

One said: “Why is this a police matter?”
