AN AUSTRALIAN news reporter and her cameraman have been mugged by a pair of balaclava-wearing cyclists in an upmarket London suburb.

Seven News Europe correspondent Laurel Irving and cameraman Jimmy Cannon had just finished a live cross to the Sunrise morning program and were pre-recording footage for later use when the two men rode up and demanded their $25,000 camera.
