Sky News has apologised after one of their reporters went through luggage at the crash site of MH17 in the Ukraine.

Reporter Colin Brazier found a bag laying in a field, and while live on air preceeded to rummage through the belongings.

Brazier realised during the broadcase and said, "we shouldn't really be doing this, I suppose."

However that didn't stop outrage on social media sites.

Sky News have since issued this statement:

"Today whilst presenting from the site of the MH17 air crash Colin Brazier reflected on the human tragedy of the event and showed audiences the content of one of the victims' bags. Colin immediately recognised that this was inappropriate and said so on air. Both Colin and Sky News apologise profusely for any offence caused."
