BBC News has issued an apology after the words ‘Manchester United are rubbish’ were present on its rolling news ticker for a few seconds on Tuesday morning. 

The broadcaster is always on hand to keep viewers up to date with the biggest goings-on of the day, on its 24-hour news channel.

However, some viewers tuning into BBC News noticed something seemed a little off on Tuesday. 

During a morning sports bulletin, other news stories from the day were put out on the news ticker for viewers to see.

But at one moment, the ticker bizarrely read: ‘Manchester United are rubbish,’ which the BBC quickly apologised for. 

A presenter addressed the moment on-screen, hoping not to have ‘offended’ any Manchester United fans. 

She said: ‘Just while we’re on the subject of football, a little earlier, some of you may have noticed something pretty unusual on the ticker, that runs along the bottom of the screen with news, making a comment about Manchester United. 

‘I hope that Manchester United fans weren’t offended by it, let me just explain what was happening.’
