Nadine Dorries live TV cross cut, security called in Birmingham

A minister has called for “security” at the wild live television broadcast of the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

A live Sky News TV cross feed with UK Foreign Secretary Nadine Dorries was cut on Thursday night (AEST) after live microphone threats were made.

An off-camera brawl involving a cameraman got heated while Doris was watching live at the Commonwealth Games in Victoria Square.

She was seen nervously looking away from the camera several times before stepping in to stop the interview when she heard a scream in the background. “Should I go? Should I move?” She said to the side of the screen.

“Kay we have to go, sorry. Your cameraman is in a bit of trouble,” said host Kay Berlin.

Doris asked security personnel to respond to the incident.

The entire debate was caught on live microphone.

“Don’t touch me. “If you lay a finger on me, I will order you to attack,” someone was heard saying.

Doris then tells the audience that the cameraman involved did not touch the man.

“He’s not touching you. I didn’t touch the cameraman,” she said.

Then the man said, “He can’t touch me, lady. You mean he doesn’t touch me? He can’t. I’ll hold it in five seconds flat.

Doris later tweeted about the incident.

“It’s been a bit of a fortuitous start today in the media but I’m delighted to be here in Birmingham for the Commonwealth Games and to see the incredible impact the Government’s £600 million investment has had on the city and the surrounding area.

“Amazing atmosphere – can’t wait for the opening ceremony tonight.”
