(Scroll down for video) A BBC reporter was accused of sexual harassment when he was seen on video grabbing a woman’s breasts.

BBC News reporter Ben Brown of England, was being recorded on live television when the incident occurred.

Brown was interviewing the political BBC editor Norman Smith, when a woman walked up to them.

She praised them for their work by giving the thumbs up and saying “absolutely fantastic.”

Brown did not want her to ruin the segment so he placed his right hand in front of her. He then touched her breast and moved her out of the way.

Brown later said that it was an accident. He wrote on twitter “Unfortunate interruption of broadcast in Bradford, just tried to minimise disruption but tricky live on air – completely unintentional.”
