Update Via @johnestevens, a new video shows the full context of Kay Burley’s breaking news.
Burley finishes speaking to an expert:
I want to chat to Donna, who we were chatting to a little while ago, hiya.
You’ve heard the news?
Yeah, he’s just said. [gestures off camera, tearing up] I’m sorry.[A second person approaches]
What’s happened? What’s happened, we haven’t heard.
OK, I didn’t know that you hadn’t heard.
No we haven’t heard.
OK, OK, well. Let me just tell you what we’ve heard from the police, is that it’s now become a murder investigation. . .
Still, this raises questions about the ethics of rolling live news coverage of such a story.
It’s not even the first grossly inappropriate comment to have been aired in this story:
Oh dear,Kay Burley asks dog handler live on Sky News what his dog does in search for 5 year old April Jones, his reply ‘cadaver search dog”
