Powercut at ITN

Updated on Wednesday 13 January 2010 by @TVNewsroom

There’s a major powercut at ITN that could see ITV News at Ten not make it to air.

News at Ten presenter, Julie Etchingham and the team are making their way to the Millbank studios.

ITN cameraman, Jim Dutton (CameramanJimITV) tweeted: “News at Ten plan B swinging into action. Team heading to Millbank for what is likely to be a stripped down version”

Will they make it? and what will happen to London Tonight?

UPDATE: ITV’s Football coverage was extended to just before 11pm with News at Ten following. London Tonight viewers were treated to a bulletin from Meridian News read by Sangeeta Bhabra.
