Description

Journalist Lloyd Burr was reporting live on England and Croatia's World Cup semi-final for the AM Show in New Zealand when a beer was hurled at his face. Burr, who was at Boxpark Croydon in south London, said the man in question was a 'drunken Aussie' and despite the incident called the atmosphere 'epic'. 
After the broadcast Richard Sutherland, Newshub Head of Broadcast News said: "Mediaworks treats any attack on our staff extremely seriously. Lloyd and camera operator Simon Morrow handled themselves with the utmost professionalism, and continued to broadcast during a very trying situation."
