BBC Wales used a photo of Brighton Pavilion with a news story on Ramadan, as if the building were a mosque.
According to the Brighton Museums website, the pavilion was “Built as a seaside pleasure palace for King George IV, this historic house mixes Regency grandeur with the visual style of India and China.”
“The gaffe took place during a live broadcast on Friday and was instantly spotted by eagle-eyed viewers,” the Mail Online reported.
‘This was a mistake for which we apologise,’ a BBC spokesperson told the Mail Online.
