Tonbridge and Malling MP Tom Tugendhat cuts phone interview with LBC short because of baby crying

By Natalie Tipping

A Kent MP had to stop a radio interview because his baby wouldn't stop crying.

Tom Tugendhat was being interviewed on LBC about the ongoing row over Catalonian independence.

During the phone interview, as he was explaining the role Britain could play to help both sides find a solution, his child started crying, and got increasingly agitated as the call went on.

As he was explaining how the historic Kingdom of Aragon, a precedent of Catalonia, was a historic friend of Britain, and Spain is a modern friend, listeners could hear his baby crying.

The Tonbridge and Malling MP apologised, joking: "Sorry, you can hear somebody else needs a good friend."

Nick Ferrari, who hosts the morning show between 7am and 10am on weekdays, quickly said: "There are more pressing affairs, Mr Tugendhat. You go and take care of that because they require attention."
