Newsnight editor Ian Katz has apologised for his comments about the shadow chief secretary to the Treasury Credit: Newsnight/BBC

Last night's closing credits of Newsnight acknowledged the gaffe by its editor Ian Katz after he accidentally tweeted that Labour's shadow Treasury minister Rachel Reeves was "boring" and "snoring."

The former Guardian deputy editor meant to send his remarks in a private message but instead posted it to his 27,000 followers.

Mr Katz issued a written apology to Labour and Ms Reeves for his comments.
