The sound cut out during Sunday With Laura Kuenssberg for many viewers (Picture: BBC)
Many audiences of Sunday With Laura Kuenssberg were without sound during the final minutes on BBC One this morning.
Viewers were left confused after Sir Iain Duncan Smith’s comments were muted halfway through his reply to the presenter regarding whether Conservative party members should vote for the new leader of the party.
BBC iPlayer was also affected, with viewers taking to social media to highlight the technical fault.
‘Seems like 100 years of the @BBC has taking its toll and they’ve worn out the sound! Come on guys please fix it!!!’ one pointed out.
Another said: ‘No sound on TV , tablet, or phone on @BBCOne. @bbclaurak cut off during her last interview and nothing since. Is it just me or everyone?’
Not all regions were without sound though, with BBC North West appearing to be running seamlessly.
For those who missed it, Kuenssberg ended her programme by asking whether any of the Tory party candidates can get a grip on the competition and the country.
‘Well, we’ve heard that both Rishi Sunak and Boris Johnson will stand,’ she said. ‘And Penny Mourdant was here to make her case for unity.
‘But, we’ve also heard about those damning polling numbers for the Conservatives, whoever wins.
‘And we’ve heard from the former Bank of England governor who managed the last economic crisis about the real perils that lie ahead and the need for truths from politicians.’
She continued: ‘And, we heard from an ever more confident sounding Kier Starmer. But, he can’t force the election he craves and no politician has an easy answer to what is happening to the economy.
‘So, Kier Starmer and the rest of us watch on again while the Conservative Party decides in the next few days who should lead our country.’
