Heard on the grapevine that there was an ongoing Police incident at Cedar Way on the Bellfields estate, kit was launched into the boot of the car and away we go, by the time that I turn up the scene was being searched by the forensics teams from Surrey Police. Lots of rumours and speculation about who the victim was/wasn’t had/had not done. Anyway, pictures filed.
A quick update, the initial reports were of a severed foot, however, later reports confirm that it is the body of a woman that was found in the bin. A quick glance at the Sky News website shows that they really have their finger on the pulse
A neighbour, who did not wish to be named, said: “I saw police there yesterday and then just read about it on the internet.
“I don’t know who lived there, it’s all a bit odd. There are police here again this morning, but I don’t know what they are doing.
“I think the house may be up for sale, but I could be wrong.”
Civilian contributors have always existed in the news media, the individual who has been caught in the middle of something exciting, dramatic, dangerous or just amusing, however I am concerned how the news media especially certain sections of it, including TV and agencies such as Big are exploiting Joe Public.
Not only are they robbing individuals of their images without payment they are also stealing any future potential of these images with all-rights grabbing contracts. OK, Joe Public is partially to be blamed for being gullible twats and giving away something that could potentially be worth many thousands of pounds in re-sale value, but the agencies themselves are just thieving b@stards.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the Super Bikes over the last couple of years and Thruxton usually provides some really competitive racing, it is the fastest BSB track, and Neil Rutter was clocked through one of the speed traps at a shade over 200 miles per hour.
240 miles, one tank of fuel and a grand day out. Yep today I took the Grand Cherokee to Birmingham for the Focus on imaging show at the NEC. A great opportunity to touch base with a few colleagues from the http://www.f8andbethere.com forum and the British Press Photographers Association. I travelled up with Neil Ford (a chap who helps administrate the F8andbethere.com forum, and all round techy chap, that is useful to know if you have Windoze or OSX problems ((contact Nubenu IT Services))
