It's common knowledge that things on live broadcasts can often go tits up. During one BBC news report this week, it literally did.
BBC Spotlight (the regional news programme for the South West) was in East Devon for the 63rd Folk Week.
Whille chatting to one man in Sidmouth, two people can be seen walking past in the background. As they move increasingly into shot, the woman in the black crop top pulls it to one side and gives viewers a flash of her boob.
Amazingly, nobody in the crew picked her up and the interview continued. People were quick to spot it, but with no action taken by the cameraman to remove her from shot, they questioned if that's what they saw.
Oh my god a woman has just flashed her boob in the background of the Sidmouth folk fest on BBC spotlight!! :joy::joy:

What amused many, also offended others, with some social media users branding the clip as 'shocking'.
Live television is a necessity, but it can often throw up a classic It'll Be Alright On The Night-styled error which will be saved, undoubtedly, for the blooper reel.
For the BBC though, it's not the first time this year that boob blunder has happened. Back during the election campaign in May, one news presenter certainly had a handful to deal with.
News anchor Ben Brown was on location in Bradford for the launch of the labour manifesto and was staging a pleasant chat with the channel's assistant political editor, Norman Smith.
As a gatecrashing woman walks past, to give a big thumbs-up and saying, 'absolutely fantastic' to camera, Ben tries to gently swipe her away from the scene.
In doing so, Ben accidentally grabbed her right breast, which saw her slaps the presenter on the shoulder as she walked off.
Brown himself tweeted in response: "Unfortunate interruption of broadcast in Bradford - just tried to minimise disruption but v tricky live on air - completely unintentional."
Live television, never change.
