A news crew in Japan was caught out while exaggerating a report on snowfall after a local resident posted the real photos on social media.  
Public broadcaster NHK reported on 'waist-deep snow' in the town of Sukayu, which had been covered in a blanket of snow on December 9. 
The reporter said: 'As you can see, so much snow has piled up that it's as high as my waist.'

But a resident tweeted images comparing the exaggerated news footage with her own behind-the-scenes pictures of the report which showed that the town was not covered in the same depth of snow.

'"What the heck are they doing?", I wondered,' Koichinamini posted before seeing the exaggerated report on the evening news. 
The reporter said he was waist-high in snow: 'As you can see, so much snow has piled up that it's as high as my waist'

Sukayu, which is a hot spring community in Aomori City in northern Japan, had experienced snowfall in the town centre on December 9 but waist-deep snow could only be found further out of town. 
A local Aomori news crew filmed footage of legitimate waist-deep snow the following day, which showed snow so deep the reporter struggled to move and an entire area behind him covered in deep snow.
