BBC News has apologised after using clips of the wrong actor in a segment on the death of Shashi Kapoor.

Taking to Twitter, the programme's editor Paul Royall said the slip was not of the programme's "usual standards".

He said BBC News at Ten is very sorry wrong images were used to mark the death of Shashi Kapoor.

On BBC News at Ten yesterday, video clips were played as presenter Huw Edwards announced the veteran Bollywood star had died at the age of 79, but neither of the men shown were Kapoor.

One of them was actor Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor.

Kapoor who was a prolific Bollywood actor and producer from the 1970s and 80s died after a long illness.
