Two Australian journalists have been set upon while reporting on Black Lives Matter protests in London.

Nine News correspondent Ben Avery was crossing to the Today show this morning when he was ambushed by demonstrators and forced to abandon his live coverage.

It comes after Nine’s Europe Correspondent Sophie Walsh was attacked live on air while previewing a Black Lives Matter protest last night.

Ms Walsh was live on the evening news in Adelaide when a man allegedly said Allahu Akbar before grabbing her.
Her cameraman managed to chase down the attacker and hold him until police arrived.

He was allegedly found in possession of a screwdriver and arrested for threats to kill and carrying a weapon.
