Reporter Martina Fitzgerald had her live news report interrupted on tonight's Six One.

A young male enters the frame and shouts 'f*** her right in the p****', following a bizarre trend for shouting this phrase at reporters on live TV.

A young female also appears on screen during the brief interruption.

The camera quickly cut to Brian Dobson back in the studio, who apologised to viwers for the incident.

Fitzgerald has been widely praised on social media for staying so composed during the incident.
