A fire alarm knocked ITV News at Ten (which is produced by ITN) off air. They apparently stayed on for a few minutes until a package ended and Tom Bradby explained that they were going to evacuate and may be back. ITV put up their break down slide and left the building. Unfortunately they were not able to get back into the building in time to finish the broadcast. ITV London’s nightly newscast, which are also produced by ITN in the same studio, did not make it to air. Instead an adjacent region, ITV Meridian, was piped in and broadcast to London viewers.
