Traffic from High Town is being diverted down East Street.

Entrance to Widemarsh Street from Cosy Club not restricted, but best avoided.

Broad Street closed from Queens Arms to Cathedral Close, pedestrians not allowed either.

West Street closed from junction with Aubrey Street.

It was pretty obvious why the poor bloke was on the roof. The police said they were responding to calls over the safety of a person. No need to elaborate...

 

As for other examples, I'd mention the poor bloke over the duck pond. The Hereford Times covered his inquest, I'm not sure why they needed to go into such detail, but even that wasn't enough for you.

 

Maybe you would like to explain why you are so interested in other people's misfortune...

Hi Roger,

 

                   Do we need to know?,                

 

Maybe the people who had their own morning screwed around, because of the incident, deserve to know?

 

It was pretty obvious why the poor bloke was on the roof.

 

Why was he up there then? You obviously know.

 

 

Maybe you would like to explain why you are so interested in other people's misfortune...

 

You are obviously a troll trying to pursue some sort of agenda to stir some sort of pot. 

 

The point being made is that high profile media stories break with a tag line of 'more details soon when we have them ....' and then there is actually no update arriving .....

 

The front page 'H T' story about armed raids the other week took about 3 weeks to get an update. 

 

What about the Whitecross double rapist suspect who got dragged in and then no update? Presumably it was all pretty obvious what happened to him. Perhaps you can tell us?

Roger, this situation where breaking news stories go quiet happens all over the country and is down to two things. One is the law (the contempt of court act) and the other is the slow process of the courts and the legal system.

 

As I'm sure Colin is aware as an excellent moderator of this site, once someone is arrested the media is not allowed to report anything which may influence their trial. If they do, they can themselves be brought before the courts. This would apply to the Whitecross case.

 

I see you have hinted at being a police officer elsewhere. If this was the case I'd have thought you would have known things like this. Oh, and you do know it's an offence to impersonate a PC?

Just saying...
