BBC Breakfast's Naga Munchetty steps in to defend Carol Kirkwood after weather blunder | The Sun

BBC Breakfast's Naga Munchetty stepped in to defend Carol Kirkwood after a weather blunder.

On Thursday, Naga, 47, chatted to sports correspondent Chetan Pathak about the women's England football team beating Spain in the quarter finals on Wednesday night.

The team has made it through to the semi-finals against either Sweden or Belgium and Chetan said: "No easy matches, we know that, but England have talked for years now about getting to their peak.

"2022 European Championships, 2023 Women's World Cup… I think it's happening."

Naga then asked: "Are you on on Monday?"

Chetan replied with a laugh: "No! This is why I get to make brave predictions, but you won't see me again on Breakfast before the Championships."

Naga then segwayed into the weather and said: "Carol doesn't have that luxury.

"She's here Monday to Thursday, she has to make the right predictions all the time. She gets a hell of a lot of flack!"

She then turned to Carol, 60, and said: "Carol, good morning to you. You do it very well, by the way!"

Carol replied: "Thank you, Naga – you're not wrong, either!"

Indeed, Carol received a barrage of comments on Wednesday after a major blunder during one of her weather reports.

Carol was explaining how the Met Office had issued a yellow weather warning of thunderstorms.

However the green screen behind her had malfunctioned and had labelled locations incorrectly, with the various dots all being called Abbots Langley, which is a large village in Hertfordshire.

Taking to Twitter, one BBC Breakfast viewer wrote: "Met Office yellow weather warning of multiple Abbots Langley." 

Another joked: "Wow, @bbcweather really putting #abbotslangley on the map today."

A third shared: "Looks like Abbots Langley is going to explode due to thunderstorms today. So instead of one small Abbots Langley, were going to have five tiny ones. #abbotslangley." 

Meanwhile a fourth added: "Is Abbots Langley going to have thunderstorms, or are thunderstorms going to have Abbots Langleys?"
