Nine’s Europe Correspondent Sophie Walsh has spoken to Ben Fordham after she was assaulted live on-air.

Sophie was covering the upcoming protests from London when a man came up and grabbed her reportedly yelling “Allahu Akbar” and making stabbing motions.

Her cameraman then chased the man with a light stand down Hyde Park until he was arrested.

“It was terrifying,” Sophie told Ben Fordham.

“I managed to get free and he was standing about five metres away from me when I was back on-air and that’s why I was struggling to find the words to say anything while I was on camera.

“It’s also the third anniversary of the London Bridge terror attacks.”
