    Nice to see Sky News were back on form for this terrible incident. First with the pictures by quite a long time tonight.

    From Sky News website.

    Yes, I noticed. BBC were behind, as usual, so were ITV and when they did show it they still carried on showing adverts (just awful).

    They also broke a story in Iraq shortly after the train crash also, I don’t think any of the other “news channels” did, I’m referring to you BBC and ITV.

    If by “on form” you mean the usual inane questioning from the studio presenter, wanting immediate answers and demanding speculation from the early contributors, then you are right!
    Clearly in possession of the notorious ‘Burley/Stanford’ attack list.

    Tonight’s presenter {King?} keen to project “…yet another rail accident”, until he realised a car was involved. Next stage was to infer the Rail network should not permit ‘half-barrier’ crossings. He eventually stopped short of suggesting the speed of the train was a relevance.

    Watch out for the ‘ambulance chaser’ legal scum, usually led by the disgraceful Ms Christian, crawl from the woodwork come Monday morning.

    very terrible incident, reports now say that 6 people have died.

    The coverage has been great, Gordon Radley joined Allan King at midnight.

    No music at the top of the hour (00:00) Allan has stayed on, with Gordon Radley coming on for Lisa.

    Gordon’s alone now (01:00) Ross is still near the scene, Juliet still at the hospital.

    Kay and Martin would have been fanatastic and would have bought very excisiting lively coverage.

    I find Allan Kings mature style dull and boring. They should have bought in the big guns

    Edit – my post made no sense sorry.

    Where were Kay and Martin yesterday at live coverage on train crash??

    The breaking news has started in Allan King’s shift and all the interviews, explanations and live coverage from the studio were brilliantly and very professionally done by him and Lisa.

    What was wrong with Alan Kings coverage? I thought the questions he asked surivivors were the ones we wanted to know. I’m using his performance last night as an example of why I rank him so highly amongst the Sky presenters. Yes he is mature – so we get the news.

    Getting back to the story though, what is up with your rail network. I travelled on it alot years ago. I always thought it was very large and extensive, good value as well, with good competition, then again I always thought your trains were old, late and crapmed.

    Since then you have had so many train crashes and the next time I go to the UK (as a foot passenger) I will not take the train. I’d actually be afraid. – And that is coming from a regular train passenger and I’ve travelled by train in many different countries.

    Were Kay and Martin on this weekend daytime then? I’ve been at work so have not seen much.
