      Ofcom to investigate Sky News over MH17 crash report

      BBC News - Ofcom to investigate Sky News over MH17 crash report
      The media regulator, Ofcom, has said it will investigate a Sky News report from the MH17 plane crash site that drew more than 200 complaints.

      Live footage from Ukraine, broadcast on 20 July, showed reporter Colin Brazier pluck items from an open suitcase.

      He dropped them back into the luggage saying "we shouldn't really be doing this I suppose, really".

      A Sky News spokesperson said the channel and Mr Brazier "apologise profusely for any offence caused".

      Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 crashed over rebel-held territory in eastern Ukraine on 17 July.

      All 298 people on board were killed.

      The crash left bodies strewn across several kilometres, as well as plane wreckage and passengers' belongings.

      Mr Brazier's broadcast showed an array of luggage and personal items, which he described as "holiday paraphernalia", collected on the ground.

      Ofcom said after assessing 205 complaints about the broadcast, it found "there are grounds to investigate under our rule on potentially offensive material".

      Ofcom said it would "take relevant circumstances into account, including any action taken by the broadcaster, in reaching a decision".

      A Sky News statement from the day after the broadcast said "while presenting from the site of the MH17 air crash Colin Brazier reflected on the tragedy of the event and showed audiences the contents of one of the victim's bags.

      "Colin immediately recognised that this was inappropriate and said so on air. Both Colin and Sky News apologise profusely for any offence caused".

      The Ukrainian government and pro-Russian rebels have accused each other of shooting down the passenger jet.

      The US and other nations say there is growing evidence of Russian complicity in the crash.

      With the amount of looting that went on its a wonder there was anything left to pluck by the time reporters got in.

      True enough.

      I did read a story last week about how credit card details from those on the flight were being used fraudulently in various countries.

      It makes you wonder just how secure things really are.

      Unfortunately, whether we like to admit it or not, left alone many people in the UK would do pretty much the same.

      Thankfully at this time the authorities would be able to cordon off the area in order to prevent the cards from being taken.

      At the same time, a lot of the rogue elements on the Internet appear to come from Ukraine. This isn't to say that they are the worse or majority, just a lot of the IP Addresses relating to on-line nasties seems to come from there.

      Yes they would be looting, as they did in the UK during ww2, but it is kept low key and not mentioned too often when hailing the wartime spirit we had in this country of coping and looking out for others!
