A television news presenter from Harrow could face legal action after being caught in a scuffle with rival journalists.
Sky News presenter Kay Burley has been accused of grabbing photographer Kirsty Wigglesworth by the neck while jostling to cover Naomi Campbell's appearance at Uxbridge Magistrates' Court on Friday (20).
Miss Burley, 46, of Harrow, was left with a black eye after being hit in the cheek by a camera in the media scrum.
More than 100 journalists turned up outside the court to get a view of Miss Campbell as she arrived to admit assaulting two police officers at Heathrow Airport.
Following the fracas Miss Wigglesworth, who works for international news agency The Associated Press, was pictured with red marks around her neck before going to hospital.
Miss Burley also spent several hours at the private Clementine Churchill Hospital, Sudbury Hill, Harrow.
The Associated Press have denied Miss Wigglesworth was the person who bumped Miss Burley with a camera and the photographer is believed to have consulted lawyers over the incident.
A Sky News spokesman said, "Kay Burley was provoked by a hard hit to the face with a camera. “She has already said that if she did any more than put her hands up, then she apologises."
Miss Burley, who has covered major stories from the World Trade Centre attacks to the death of Princess Diana, was back at work on Tuesday (24).
