Video: Distracted newsreader falls into canal while texting

CCTV footage has captured the moment a radio newsreader fell into a canal in Birmingham while she was texting her boyfriend.

In the short clip Capital FM's Laura Safe is busy looking at her phone while she walks down a set of stairs and plunges straight into freezing water.

Luckily, she was quickly helped by a passer-by and later tweeted: 'Oh dear. I should really be called Laura UNsafe after the day I've had! Lol'.
