Sky Sports has apologised after some viewers complained of interference during the pre-match playing of the Last Post ahead of the Sheffield derby.
Rather than hearing the trumpet call ahead of Armistice Day on Sunday, some heard what appeared to be crowd noise, with those at the ground insisting silence had been observed.
Sky has put the problem down to a ‘technical error’.
