  • Hats off to you, following the very sensible advice of the Samaritans and not reporting the sensational details of this very sad event. Must have been so tempting to splash something dramatic across the front page and almost certainly increase your sales for that day. A lot of responsible self control for which you deserve credit. Shame same cannot be said for the tabloids. Thoughts and prayers with the family and others affected.
