Funeral Held For Sky News Camera Operator and ‘true warrior of television news’ Mick Deane

A funeral service for Sky News camera operator Mick Deane was held yesterday at the London Film Museum. Deane was shot and killed in Cairo, Egypt earlier this month, while covering the violence there between the security forces and Muslim Brotherhood protesters.

Sky News has more on the services.

Sky News presenter Jeremy Thompson described Mr Deane as “one of the warmest, kindest, bravest and funniest of all men.

He added: “Mick died as he lived – doing his level best. Doing his best to open the eyes of the world to injustice. Doing his best for his mates. Doing his best to get that story on air, whatever the pressures.

“He was, I think, a true warrior of television news.”
