Leaders debate dramatically stopped on Talk TV after crashing noise in studio

The latest debate between the two candidates vying to be prime minister has been dramatically stopped after a crashing sound was heard off camera.

A TalkTV presenter suggested ‘everyone is ok’ after News UK confirmed that there had been a ‘medical incident’.

The BBC is reporting that presenter Kate McCann fainted and collapsed.

Liz Truss looked very shocked as the noise was heard and then walked towards where Ms McCann was standing.

The Foreign Secretary appeared visibly worried and could be heard saying ‘oh my god’, as she looked towards the ground and then walked away from her podium.

The programme immediately went off-air, with a message appearing on the screen, saying: ‘We are sorry for the disruption to this programme.

‘We are working hard to fix the issue and will return to normal programming soon.’

Reports suggest the debate will not resume.

A Sun spokeswoman said the debate was paused because of a medical issue.

‘There was a medical issue, we hope to be back on air soon,’ she said.

Journalists at the event were also told there had been a medical issue not a
security alert.

A replacement programme currently on The Sun website saw two pundits suggesting that the two candidates were currently still taking questions from the studio audience off air.

Ms McCann was meant to appear alongside The Sun’s political editor Harry Cole, but he tested positive for Covid-19 earlier today.
