Royal baby wait takes its toll on BBC reporter Simon McCoy

Frustrated reporter outside St Mary’s Lindo Wing grumbles that he’ll continue to report on no news


News bulletins back and forward to reporters outside of the Lindo Wing at St Mary’s hospital appears to be taking its toll on one reporter, the BBC’s Simon McCoy.


Standing outside of the Lindo Wing, willing the doors to open with the sight of a bouncing royal baby, McCoy says of the repeat broadcasts: “Well plenty more to come from here of course, none of it news, because that will come from Buckingham Palace. But that won’t stop us. We’ll see you later.”

Someone get that man a cold drink. Perhaps a cold compress.

Of course, appearing on screen with the words ‘breaking news’ running below your face while you talk about a story that broke some twelve hours ago, must get a little frustrating.

McCoy’s no doubt jostling with the media masses for what little bit of pavement he’s had duct taped out for him. The poor lamb.

Oh well, it’ll probably be a few more hours. If not days. Maybe don’t tell him that bit…
