As the violence in Egypt reaches new levels, a veteran cameraman for the UK’s Sky News has been shot and killed. 61-year old Mick Deane had worked for Sky for 15 years. He was married with two children.
Head of Sky News John Ryley described Mick as the very best of cameramen, a brilliant journalist and an inspiring mentor to many at Sky.
“Mick Deane was a really lovely, lovely guy,” he said. “He was great fun to work with, he was an astonishingly good cameraman who took some brilliant pictures. But he also had a first class editorial brain. He had brilliant ideas. He was also good fun after the job was done. He was laid back, and I’m really going to miss him, like lots of people here.”
