Nottingham horror news clip sparks outrage as 'idiot' invades shot | The Sun

AN IDIOT has been slammed for launching herself into the frame of a Sky News broadcast on the Nottingham tragedy.

The "disrespectful" woman waved her arms and laughed as Sky's Sarah-Jane Mee delivered the news of three deaths in a knife rampage in the city yesterday.

A 31-year-old man was arrested by cops yesterday after University of Nottingham first-year students Barnaby Webber and Grace Kumar, both 19, were killed alongside a third man aged in his 50s.

Three victims were left hospitalised in the rampage, one in critical condition, after they were rammed with a van while waiting at a bus stop in the centre of the city at 5.30am yesterday.

During a news report broadcast on Sky News yesterday a woman wearing a blue t-shirt and sunglasses waved her arms dramatically in the air in front of the camera.

She was stood directly in front of a police cordon blocking the scene where Barnaby and Grace had been brutally killed just hours before.

Another man grinned as he held a toddler on his shoulders before walking into frame behind the newsreader.

Behind them cops stood guarding the doorway of one of a number of houses raided by armed terror police at 1pm yesterday.

Brits flocked to social media to slam the intruders.

One said: "I just can't understand what would possess someone to get into a news item on the murder of three innocent lives.

"What a society we're raising."

Another comment read: "What an embarrassment."

Another said: "This is down right disrespectful."

One person added: "There are no words."

One said: "We're raising a society that has lost its value and moral decency."

Another said: "I would be ashamed and disgusted if one of my family had done that."

It comes as Barnaby's heartbroken family slammed his "senseless murder".

Barnaby and Grace, both 19, were said to be walking home from a nightclub when they were knifed to death.

The alleged lone wolf attacker is understood to be a foreign national with mental health issues.

Barnaby's devastated parents, and younger brother Charlie, have now paid tribute to him.

David and Emma Webber described the heartache they feel over losing their "beautiful, brilliant, bright" son.

They said: "Complete devastation is not enough to describe our pain and loss at the senseless murder of our son.

"Barnaby Philip John Webber was a beautiful, brilliant, bright young man, with everything in life to look forward to.

"A talented and passionate cricketer, who was over the moon to have made selection to his university cricket team."

At just 19, Barnaby was growing into a "wonderful young man", they said.

The family explained how proud they were of their cricket-loving son, and thanked everyone who had supported them over the last day.

David and Emma continued: "As parents we are enormously proud of everything he achieved and all the plans he had made.

"His brother is bereft beyond belief, and at this time we ask for privacy as a family to be allowed time to process and grieve.

"We are so proud to release these photographs, chosen by us as a family, of an amazing son, brother, grandson, nephew and friend.

"Thank you for your understanding, and to everyone who has supported us in this awful journey so far."

Yesterday Barnaby's cricket club Somerset side Bishops Hull paid tribute to the all-rounder.

The club said: “Webbs joined the club back in 2021 and has since then been a key part of our club and made such an impact in such a short space of time.

"Playing more than 30 games for the club, scoring 622 runs, and taking 29 wickets, his memory will live on.

“As a club we would like to invite family, friends, club members and members of the village and public who wish to pay their respects and lay some flowers at the club.”

Police were first rushed to Ilkeston Road just after 4am yesterday after witnesses revealed they heard "blood-curdling screams".

Onlookers described the horror moment they claim they saw the knifing take place, before police swarmed the scene.

Police were then called to Milton Street where the stolen van was used to run over three people – leaving one man in a critical condition with two others suffering minor injuries.

Detectives – including terror cops – believe the suspect had stolen the van from nearby Magdala Road, where he killed the vehicle's owner.

The man in his 50s had been stabbed to death, police believe.

The suspect was ultimately arrested about 5.30am, after being Tasered by cops who dragged him from the vehicle.
