Yesterday the BBC press office denied Guido’s story that they had accidentally revealed the Hillsborough verdict in breach of the judge’s orders:
.@mediaguido Nonsense – We don’t know verdict and didn’t air one. Caption said jury had reached a verdict. We await outcome tomorrow.

Unfortunately for the Beeb it wasn’t just Guido who spotted it:
BBC have accidentally announced Hillsborough verdict. Just watched it back. They put it right on the screen. (h/t @GuidoFawkes)
