A camera woman in Hungary has been caught on video tripping and kicking migrants at a reception centre for refugees in Roszke.

Petra Laszlo, was filming for the youtube-based channel N1TV, which is close to the far-right Jobbik party.

As a man carrying a toddler runs by she clearly puts out her leg, causing him to trip and fall to the ground.

In another incident Laszlo is seen kicking a girl who runs past her.

A German journalist filmed her actions and posted a video on his twitter account.

The woman has since been fired by N1TV, and a British newspaper reports that she could face up to five years in prison if she is charged.

On its facebook page the channel said her behaviour had been unacceptable.
