ITN chief: Cameraman's death 'a very sad moment'

ITN chief executive John Hardie has paid tribute to Sky News cameraman Mick Deane, who was shot and killed in Egypt this morning.

Our condolences go out to Mickey’s family, our colleagues at Sky News and those here who knew Mickey from his work for ITN, where he worked in the Hong Kong bureau with Mark Austin and others in the mid-90s.

Mickey’s death is a very sad moment for all of us working in television news and makes us remember again the passing of brave journalists such as Tim Hetherington killed in Libya, Marie Colvin killed in Syria, and of course our own Terry Lloyd, Fred Nérac, Hussein Osman and Gaby Rado in Iraq.

– John Hardie, ITN Chief Executive
