BBC News has come in for fierce criticism for their coverage of the death of Bollywood icon Shashi Kapoor.

Viewers took to social media to vent their frustration at the lack of empathy and even more shocking to many was how they featured a picture of Rishi Kapoor instead.

In fact during the segment they never used a picture of Shashi Kapoor who died yesterday aged 79.



BBC News Editor Paul Royall apologised on Twitter, He said, "#BBCNewsTen is very sorry wrong images were used to mark the death of Shashi Kapoor. Not our usual standards and I apologise for any upset."

Maybe next time someone can just ask was the team at the Asian Network?
