Some people have searched for the location of Question Time in Newbury last night. It was at St Bartholomew’s school.
There was a tragic, fatal accident at the Ufton Nervet railway crossing last night. This delayed three of the Question Time guests (Sir Menzies Campbell, Jeremy Hunt and Angela Eagle) for more than an hour. One report said the delay was at least 103 minutes long. Passengers were eventually taken off the train at Newbury Racecourse station. There was a report that the three delayed panelists didn’t get to the set until 9.30pm, leaving it very tight to record an hour-long programme for broadcast at 10.45pm. The panel was completed by Isabel Oakeshott and Rev Giles Fraser.
