Welcome to the 21st century. Live events get covered live.

If you just want to read a story after something has happened, buy tomorrows newspaper instead of moaning about a website you're reading for free.

Just my input.

Slightly embarrassing for HFRS that at 4:30 they were not aware of anyone in the building and half an hour later they'd rescued someone. I'm glad the person got out ok

Why is it embarrassing? They didn't say they knew nobody was in the building.
