A German television news reporter has been sacked after smearing herself with mud to make it appear she was involved in the cleaning up of towns devastated by floods.

Susanna Ohlen no longer works for RTL, the channel confirmed in a statement on Thursday.

At least 173 people in Germany and 32 people in Belgium have died in the floods.

It is feared the death toll may still rise as there are at least 176 people still missing from both countries, CNN has reported.

No deaths have been reported in the Netherlands, which was also hit by floods.

An RTL spokeswoman said on Thursday afternoon: “Our reporter’s approach clearly contradicts journalistic principles and our own standards.

Ms Ohlen, who has worked for RTL since 2008, apologised for her actions on Instagram, saying that she had made “a serious mistake”. »
