Radio Manchester presenter broadcasts from lay-by on M60 after breakdown

Chelsea Norris

BBC Radio Manchester Breakfast Show presenter Chelsea Norris broadcast live from a lay-by on the M60 this morning after breaking down on her way into work.

Norris was driving to the station’s studios in MediaCityUK when she got a flat tyre. Early breakfast show presenter Mark Crossley stood in for Norris, but she did call in and listeners were able to hear her progress as she was rescued by a tow truck.

Unfortunately, her problems didn’t end there, because she was given a courtesy car by the garage that picked her up and then ran out of petrol.

“I was driving to work looking forward to getting back on air when my tyre went,” she said. “And I didn’t have a spare. Spending the morning at the side of the M60 wasn’t quite what I was expecting but nothing surprises me anymore.            

“Having had such bad luck with holidays and travel, I’ve learnt my lesson. I’m never leaving home again. If I can broadcast from the side of a motorway, I can do it from my house.”
