A good reporter waits to capture that perfect news moment on film. A GREAT reporter, makes news happen!
This is what happened when a Romanian news reporter turned up a bit too late to capture a storm live on TV:
The bungling reporter has become a national laughing stock in Romania after convincing an assistant to stand just outside the camera shot and kick sand towards his direction.
He was caught out however when a cheeky, or shockingly bad, cameraman let those watching at home in on the secret.
The reporter, from the Realitatea news channel, was attempting to recreate the earlier stormy conditions for his live weather report from the country's Black Sea coast.
