There were red faces at ITV News as the bright yellow protest bus passed its cameras as it broadcasted live to the nation from outside the Houses of Parliament.

Viewers thought it was appropriate that the bus sporting the ‘Bollocks to Brexit’ message should pass-by as political correspondent Carl Dinnen reported on the consequences of austerity and homelessness.

Social media users were quick to point out the appearance of the bus to the reporter.

Another said: “ITV News could not have timed that report better outside Westminster tonight!”
