Make way for Bruce!

The BBC newsreader, Fiona Bruce, has been widely criticised for stopping a police car, and asking for a lift.

The feisty Bruce - that one with the reddish hair and 'Catwoman' look who stands there in the dominatrix pose - got out of a taxi which was stuck in rush-hour traffic, and hailed the cop car. Once inside, she stared penetratingly at the officer driving, and told him:

"I'm important. I'm with the BBC. I have news for the nation."

Fearing the worst - or worse - PC Andy Swine told Bruce to get in, and whisked her and her colleague, Mark Easton to the BBC Millbank studio near the Houses of Parliament.

En route, Bruce found time to tweet her 'predicament' to her Twitter followers, but once this was shared to other social media sites, critics were quick to react.

Jilly has now disappeared.

When Bruce eventually got around to reading the news, the main news appeared to be her own dash across London to read viewers the news they were now listening to, which didn't really seem like news at all.


* NOTE: Fiona Bruce is no relation of recently-sacked Aston Villa coach, Steve Bruce.
