ITV apologises after claiming computer game video was IRA footage


ITV has apologised after airing footage from a computer game which it claimed showed an IRA attack on a British army helicopter in 1988.

The footage was shown in the first episode of ITV’s new documentary series Exposure, aired on Monday night.

An ITV spokesman said: “The events featured in Exposure: Gaddafi and the IRA were genuine but it would appear that during the editing process the correct clip of the 1988 incident was not selected and other footage was mistakenly included in the film by producers.

“This was an unfortunate case of human error for which we apologise.”
