  • Europe Correspondent Sophie Walsh has been assaulted during a live television cross in London by a man making motions to stab her

A news reporter was allegedly assaulted live on air in London during Adelaide's six o'clock evening news bulletin.

Channel Nine Europe correspondent Sophie Walsh was doing a live cross to Australian audiences from London when a man grabbed her from behind. "He just came up and grabbed me though".

Walsh can be heard screaming and swears as Australia's 9 News' anchor asks her if she is okay.

Nine News reported the attacker was chased by Ms Walsh's camera operator and other bystanders.

"The man has been arrested for threats to kill and carrying a weapon", she wrote on Twitter following the incident.
