A news presenter has received online criticism after he grabbed a woman’s breast while he was on a live broadcast interview.

The journalist, Ben Brown was discussing Labour's manifesto launch with political correspondent Norman Smith when a woman interjected the conversation moving straight into the shot.

The woman in the video appeared to have intended to talk but Ben with his hand on the woman’s breast, he pushed her away before he went on with the interview.

Before walking away, the blonde woman slapped him on the shoulder even as the journalist appeared cupping her breast and seemed to continue with the broadcast.

Critics have argued the incident was intentional as some say he had clearly seen where to place his hand while pushing the woman out of the shot.

The journalist in a tweet termed the act as unintended and apologised saying he only tried to minimise interruption of the live interview from Bradford.

"Unfortunate interruption of broadcast in Bradford - just tried to minimise disruption but very tricky live on air - completely unintentional," he wrote on twitter.
