The Forces' sweetheart, Dame Vera Lynn has died today aged 103.

Her family confirmed the sad news in a statement, saying: "The family are deeply saddened to announce the passing of one of Britain's best-loved entertainers at the age of 103.

"Dame Vera Lynn, who lived in Ditchling, East Sussex, passed away earlier today, 18 June 2020, surrounded by her close family."

Born Vera Margaret Welch, the singer was extremely popular during the Second World War and is most remembered for songs such as We'll Meet Again, The White Cliffs of Dover, A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square and There’ll Always Be an England.

Tributes to the entertainer have poured in, but one viewer watching the news today noticed a subtle error during the BBC report.

While their presenter was speaking about Lynn's iconic 1939 hit, We'll Meet Again, the subtitles went a little wild.

A screengrab posted on Twitter instead refers to the song as 'Wheel cat meat Again'.

The image was shared by a user named Mollie who said: "Well done BBC".

Hundreds of people liked and shared the tweet, with many taking the time to respond.

One person said: "If you ever wonder why the deaf and hard of hearing community have a weird sense of humour, it's coz they have to deal with stuff like that every day. #autosubtitlefail"

Another commented: "Oh dear."

"Subtitles are hilarious," added a third.

Someone else tweeted: "Ahhh yes the classic wheel cat."

However not everyone saw an issue with it.

A different user responded to the image saying: "It’s actually incredibly good considering that it’s automated and live.

"If you can’t tolerate mistakes then switch it off, but it shouldn’t be denied to people who need it."
