    This is the lowest the Echo has reached in my opinion. Who ever is the editor should be shamed of themselves.

    Spot on. How can anyone justify minute by minute updates? It's unbelievably insensitive and unnecssary

    Surely publishing all this hearsay evidence from potentital witnesses compromises the investiagtion and any future court case?

    Pointless. Just wait until you have facts and then report the story.
    Is this a lame attempt at positioning the Echo as some kind of dynamic rolling news network as opposed to the local rag it is?

    Well it seems sad to me that the Echo can open up a forum on such a sad incident ..... But... does not allow comments on the disgraceful actions of Huhne

    Lame Range, the Echo clearly states: "As Ms Pryce is still to face trial, we are unable to allow comments for legal reasons"

    Did you ever expect any better standard of journalism from Echo? If you did I am disappointed because I thought you were intelligent person.

    What is even worse is that this all happened yesterday, so for some bizarre reason the Echo are live blogging something 24 hours old.

    The Huhne case is an ongoing court case as Ms Price has pleaded not guilty.

    Hearsay and speculation. Apppallingly bad journalism . Has added nothing to our knowledge or understanding of this sad case . Could have been written by a 9 year old . Insensitive and even worse is still on this page and has been updated . Editor--- the buck stops with YOU. SHAMEFUL
