BBC Breakfast presenter Sally Nugent left viewers cringing as they watched crime MP Chris Philp "squirm" under her pressure.
Whilst he announced new measures in place to crackdown on graffiti, vandalism and the use of nitrous oxide among under 18s, Sally continually interrupted him to get more answers about his report.
As Chris detailed report on increased policing, Sally cut him off, asking: "Do you think police have the time, facilities and money to do this?"

As Chris answered, explaining that more money had been pushed into the scheme, she cut him off again, this time asking for more clarity on the spending: "For what? What will that money pay for?"
The MP was clearly flustered, but Sally interrupted him mid-sentence a third time, adding: "Are you sure?"
Chris replied: "Sorry?" and Sally responded, dismissing the facts that Chris had outlined.
Viewers on Twitter delighted in the exchange as they listened on to the report.
One praised Sally for her work during the interview writing: "I haven't laughed so much watching a Tory squirm for ages. #chrisphilp #clueless #totallies #talkingrubbish #bbcbreakfast Well done Sally!"
A second tweeted about how Sally had the MP "on the ropes" during the chat.
"Cutting 20,000 police roles then u-turning and demanding action on anti-social behaviour caused in part by the fall in numbers of police on the streets is quite the thing. Thin-skinned Tory Chis Philp on the ropes against Sally Nugent #BBCBreakfast," they tweeted.
Another fan wasn't as happy about Sally's constant interruptions and questions about Chris' report, and instead tweeted: "Sally Nugent appears to hate the UK, its institutions and people so why does she live here? #bbcbreakfast #r4today."
Elsewhere in the show, Sally and Ben praised their "local hero" and co-star Carol Kirkwood for her daily weather reports.
The pair thanked Carol, 60, for "brightening their lives" and keeping them "forewarned" about the unsettled weather to come.
