ITV has apologised for airing the iconic and gruesome chestburster scene from Alien during a tribute to the actor Sir John Hurt on their mid-morning news programme after Ofcom declared they had breached the code of conduct.

‘We found some of the content in this news bulletin broke our rules on the protection of minors,’ an Ofcom spokesperson confirmed.

‘The report contained graphic images from a film that was not appropriately scheduled.’
