Good morning Britain Viewers are confused after ambient music was played over the NHS strike debate this morning.
The music was played during a panel discussion that included Daily mail Editor Andrew Pierce and Dr. Vivek Trivedi, who spoke about the strike election of the young doctors.
Shortly after the break GMB‘‘s official Twitter page eventually posted original clips of the debate in which Dr. Trivedi, co-chair of the BMA Junior Physicians Committee, said: “Poor pay and poor working conditions are causing physicians to leave the profession or move abroad.”
GMB Hosts Adil Ray and Charlotte Hawkins have also apologized for the glitch.
Many nurses across England, Wales and Northern Ireland are striking as they demand a pay rise of 5 per cent above the RPI inflation rate.
The first strike was carried out on December 15 and the second is scheduled to take place on Tuesday (December 20).
An Ipsos poll shows that 52 percent of voters support the care strikes, compared to just 27 percent against.
Nurses on the picket line said low salaries mean some colleagues have had to turn to food banks to feed their children, while they said staff shortages mean patients are neglected.
On social media, viewers were left confused by what appeared to be a technical glitch, with some joking about it GMB The discussion is “censored”.
“Can the doctor REPEAT his whole speech? We didn’t hear it!” one viewer tweeted.
“I thought that was just me,” wrote another. “Bless them, they had no idea.”
One person wrote: “Someone at @GMB doesn’t want us to hear what the intern says. Pictures ok but the sound is replaced by what can only be described as whale music.”
The Independent has reached out to ITV for comment.
