You did extremely well, considering the subject you had to cover.You stated the police facts truthfully but with feeling and anyone who has moaned to me I have noted to them that we have a free press in this country (thank goodness) and the report was factual, truthful and sincere - which I believe they all understood after being told.From a reader's point of view, you have shown what I feel are the attributes of good journalism.NAME AND ADDRESS SUPPLIED
