A camerawoman who was caught kicking and tripping over migrants as they escaped from police has been sacked.

The woman, who was working for Hungarian news site N1TV, was filming the crowds of Syrian refugees as they fled across a field from Roszke camp on the Hungarian-Serbian border.

Shocking footage showed her deliberately sticking her leg out as a desperate man carrying a crying child ran past her.


The clip showed the refugee falling to the floor with the child underneath him before he turned to shout at her.

The camerawoman was sacked with immediate effect after the TV station saw the footage online, according to local media reports.

A statement posted on the station's website this afternoon read: 'Today, a N1TV colleague behaved unacceptably at the Roeszke reception centre. The cameraman's employment was terminated with immediate effect.'
