It's good that the local paper cares about such stories, the national press appear not to care that a policeman lost his life serving the community. It is a disgrace.
The first national press coverage I saw amounted to a few paragraphs - and days after the Recorder had the story.
I know a man died at the G20 protest in London, even though he had nothing to do with the demo.

The national press carry pages and pages about a few protestors getting hit. But an officer dying doesn't merit the same coverage. - NAME AND ADDRESS SUPPLIED (via e-mail).
