Earlier this month, anti-vaccination protesters stormed what they thought was a major BBC building.

They were apparently unaware that the BBC had largely moved out of the premises at Television Centre in west London almost a decade ago.

The site is mainly used by ITV to shoot shows such as Good Morning Britain and This Morning.

The BBC largely left the building in 2013 and the vast majority of its staff and its news operation are at Broadcasting House in Portland Place, central London.
