Tickle Cock

By | February 20, 2010

I had to laugh tonight at the news presenters Christa Ackroyd and her male counterpart, who’s name escapes me, struggled with the presentation of a feature on the BBC News.  They featured a report about an underpass in Castleford, West Yorkshire.

The railway bridge known as Tickle Cock Bridge was being featured and they had to tie in to the story by regaling other naughty named localities.  When they got to Wetwang the male presenter couldn’t suppress his laughter anymore and he started giggling being joined shortly after by Christa.

She then remarked that was the end of their television presenting career.  You can read the full story about the bridge here.
