An unfortunate pixel fault on BBC’s big screen at Media City has led to Nigel Farage receiving a Hitler-style tash when speaking to BBC Breakfast.

Farage, leader of UKIP, who was speaking to BBC Breakfast about Enoch Powell, yesterday denied that he was seen as a ‘racist and a fascist’ at school.

He also had denied claims that he ‘marched through a quiet Sussex village at night shouting Hitler youth songs’.

This comes the during that same week as BBC presenter Simon McCoy went on air holding a pack of photocopier paper instead of his iPad.

The picture was tweeted by BBC TV Sportscaster Olly Foster.
