Interrupted reporter gets apology

  • 09/02/2016

One of the two men who interrupted Newshub reporter Kim Vinnell's live cross from Laneway has apologised.

Ms Vinnell posted a picture of the handwritten and hand delivered letter to her Instagram yesterday from Sean Phillips.

Mr Phillips said his behaviour was "extremely inappropriate immature and lacked the respect you and all women deserve" in his letter to Ms Vinnell.

"Over the last couple of days I have had lots of time to reflect and I am ashamed of the way I acted,

"Lastly I am sorry that we put you in this situation, it was unfair and disrespectful," he added.

She said the apology was "noted and appreciated".
