Insensitive Reporting or Slow News Week?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I came across this headline outside the Co-operative store in Cleater Moor this weekend.
    I've no idea what the story is about and it's either the most insensitive reporting of a young lady's demise or there really was bugger all happening in Whitehaven that week!

    Can you think of any examples in a similar vein?
     
  2. If it's the first option, I'm sure there are a few likely supects on here to look out for.

    I seem to remember one involving the theft of a garden gnome which cropped up in a rural paper in Cornwall.

    As a contrast, my favourite headline of all time was from the Hammersmith Chronicle: "Radioactive child porn suspect escapes bail"

    Not only is he going to f*ck your kids, he's going to give them cancer!
     
  3. Its small town papers mark their all like this i think it because stuff very rarely gets intreasting in sandford and the likes so anynews is news if you only go to press once a week. here in aber the local papers headlining news for the last week has been 'national pizza chain to open a branch in Aberystwyth' and before that they ran with the local part time refs views on the sky ref saga. small towns eh
     
  4. Either that or leave them with a pleasant glow.
     
  5. "Would you like to play with my lightsaber?"
