BBC News at Ten has apologised after using clips of the wrong actor in a segment on the death of Shashi Kapoor.

Taking to Twitter, the programme’s editor Paul Royall said the slip was not of the programme’s “usual standards”.

“BBC News at Ten is very sorry wrong images were used to mark the death of Shashi Kapoor,” he wrote. “Not our usual standards and I apologise for any upset.”

On News at Ten, video clips were played as presenter Huw Edwards announced the veteran Bollywood star had died at the age of 79, but neither of the men shown were Kapoor. One of them was actor Amitabh Bachchan.
