A German presenter has apologised after being caught smearing mud on her clothes moments before appearing on television from a town ravaged by last week’s historic floods.

Susanna Ohlen, 39, said she acted after feeling “ashamed” of reporting from the town in her clean clothes.

The broadcaster RTL said she had been suspended for breaching its standards after the video went viral.
