Rolling news anchors are known for their ability to continue chuntering on, even when there is very little actual news. But one of the few problems they can’t waffle their way through is a power cut.

Earlier today, Sky News suffered what appeared to be a brief outage, made all the more amusing by the fact that the anchor was reporting on none other than the power cut earlier this month.


Viewers were told how lightning had caused the outage when the studio feed briefly went dark. Perhaps lightning does strike twice after all…
