    Two BBC presenters have apologised after making the same embarrassing verbal slip over the name of Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt.

    Jim Naughtie, an anchor on Radio 4's flagship Today programme, accidentally replaced the first letter of Mr Hunt's surname with a "C".

    The on-air stumble just before 8am sent Mr Naughtie into a coughing fit, and attracted a slew of emails from listeners who were either amused or angry.
