I've noticed a change to the Breaking News Strap. Now i don't know if this is exclusively used on Kay Burley's Lunchtime live or if it's a new strap. I'm sure I saw the all red with white text breaking news strap earlier this morning.



Looks much bolder anyway...

I saw it this morning again..is it permanent? Seems to me to be a bit of a uturn back to the old format.

the way the red bar fades away at each end is the only good thing about it. apart from that though it looks horrible i agree. why tweak that anyway?? it looked great before. they've ruined it!

My only suggestion for the change is that possibly the entirely red breaking news strap was too similar to the BBC News 24 strap and they wanted to make Sky News more unique.
