Macquarie trader's saucy secret caught on camera

An employee at Australia's Macquarie Bank has been caught on live TV looking at a series of pictures of a semi-naked woman on his computer.

Broadcaster Seven News was interviewing Macquarie private wealth adviser Martin Lakos on the financial market's reaction to the Reserve Bank keeping interest rates on hold.

However, as Lakos spoke, viewers saw a man in the background open an e-mail and peruse a series of near-nude pictures of Victoria's Secret model Miranda Kerr.



In a statement issued to the Australian newspaper, the bank says: "Macquarie takes matters such as the unacceptable use of technology extremely seriously. Macquarie has strict policies in place surrounding the use of technology and the issue arising from today's live cross on 7 News is being dealt with internally."
