Handwritten apology for live cross disaster

One of the men who interrupted reporter Kim Vinnell's live cross from Auckland's Laneway Festival has written her an apology note.

Sean Philip, one of the men who disrupted the segment for TV3's Story, hand delivered the note to the reporter.

In the note Mr Philip said his behaviour was "extremely inappropriate immature and lacked the respect you and all women deserve".

"Over the last couple of days I have had lots of time to reflect and I am ashamed of the way I acted.

"Lastly I am sorry that we put you in this situation, it was unfair and disrespectful."
Vinnell, a freelance journalist, was trying to interview Laneway performer Lontalius when a punter jumped in front of the camera and yelled an offensive phrase.

She posted the note to her Instagram account, saying it was "noted and appreciated".
