BBC News presenter Ben Brown says BBC Radio 1 was driving him mad after being stuck in a lift for three hours.
He got stuck in a lift at the BBC in London at around 6.30pm but was free around 9pm.
Following tweets from Ben regarding his situation, Radio 1 presenter Greg James offered to do him a mention should he still be there in the morning.

Greg mentioned the incident on his show on Tuesday, and listened back to the output of Radio 1 from the night before, saying Ben would have been listening to Clara Amfo playing specialist dance music including Skin on Skin.
Once free, Ben apologised for his comments about the station saying: “Sorry Greg, didn’t mean to slag off Radio One (sic), but three hours of forced listening to any radio station is hard to take! Obviously if it had been your show, my incarceration would have been more pleasurable.”
