Man runs in front of London bus in middle of live BBC TV broadcast as passers-by watch in horror

Man seemingly runs in front of bus during live BBC broadcast about the Charlie Gard case

A live TV broadcast caught the moment a man ran in front of a London bus as passers-by watched in horror.

The man, apparently being chased, sped past the camera as BBC journalist Keith Doyle was giving an update on the Charlie Gard case outside the High Court, in the Strand.

Footage shows the unknown man, wearing a blue T-shirt and a baseball cap, running past Mr Doyle pursued by another man in a white T-shirt.

A double-decker bus screeches to a halt after the man disappears from shot, and a witness can be seen holding his hands to his mouth in shock.

A Metropolitan Police spokeswoman said: "Police were called at 3.10pm on Monday, 10 July, to reports of a collision outside the Royal Courts of Justice.

"A male pedestrian was reported to have been in collision with a bus.

"The man had an arm injury, which is not thought to be life-changing or threatening.

"Subsequent enquires showed the bus had not struck the man and this was not a traffic collision."
