GMB's Kate Garraway begs reporter 'get away from the edge!' as she battered by waves in 'concerning' storm report | The Sun

GOOD Morning Britain's Kate Garraway has begged a reporter to 'get away from the edge!' as she as battered by waves in a 'concerning' storm report.

The ITV show was covering the latest news regarding Storm Babet, which has battered Scotland and parts of England in the past 24 hours.

Correspondent Nitya Rajan was reporting from Whitley Bay harbour in North Tyneside as the high winds and rain lashed down, covering the camera and making her struggle to keep her balance.

At one point the rough seas caused a wave to splash her and she exclaimed: "Oh gosh, you can see the sheer force."

Kate, 56, then issued her a warning, saying: "Listen, I'm going to give you a warning as your mum, Nitya – I want you to come away from that edge.

"Your reporting is brilliant and vital but we're concerned about you, we don't want you to get swept up or anything – move slightly away!"

Nitya wasn't the only TV correspondent struggling through a live broadcast during the storm.

Over on BBC Breakfast, correspondents Fiona Lamdin and Alison Freeman went live from respective locations in Brechin and Whitley Bay to give the latest on Storm Babet.

But as viewers watched Charlie Stayt, 61, cross live to the hooded reporters, they were left utterly cringing as Alison in particularly described conditions as "horizontal rain".

One fumed: "Careless reporting on Storm Babet on #BBCBreakfast putting a reporter in the field just for effect. Absolutely shameful."

Another added: "Why do the BBC need to put reporters in these horrible conditions. It’s purely for effect but it’s absolutely not required for the viewers to be made aware of how bad it is out there. Where is the duty of care to these reporters #BBCBreakfast."

A red 'danger to life' warning – which is ultra rare – was issued across parts of Angus and Perthshire in Scotland, and still remains in place.

Meanwhile amber 'severe' warnings are in place down the spine of England and Scotland's east coast.

Yellow warnings have been issued in the south-east, north Wales, the Midlands and the north, as well as the whole of Northern Ireland.
