It comes after bomb sirens interrupted ITV correspondent Richard Gaisford’s live coverage from Kyiv this morning, leaving viewers worried.
When GMB’s chief correspondent was obliged to put his equipment on, he was conversing with anchors Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard.
As he took cover, the television broke away from his report, leaving him visibly terrified.
A siren could be heard in the background as Richard spoke about the strikes overnight: “As we speak, the air raid sirens are going off here in Kyiv – becoming something of a regular pattern here now.” Simply informing the public that there is a threat and where they can seek refuge, as well as making an evaluation of their own security.”
“Richard, when we hear those air raid sirens, and I know our viewers are anxious about you,” Kate said, looking over his shoulder. Are you in good health? Is it necessary for you to flee for your life? “Have you taken any precautions?”
“Yeah, we’ve taken a few measures, but we’ve got our – in fact, it’s just being passed to me,” he said as he slipped on a helmet. “It’s time to put on our personal protection equipment.” Should the necessity arise, we also have our vests. It’s a difficult moment for many people in the city who don’t have access to this type of equipment.
“As I look out the window right now, there are still people going down the street with their dogs.”
