We Can't Tell You, But We'll Stick Everything But 'It' On The Front Page

The trial concerning the horrific hammer attack at Ridgeway School has come to an end. And the Advertiser is narked that it can't report the verdict.

A gagging order has been placed on reporting the verdict to prevent prejudice of a second trial expected to begin soon. Seems fair enough, but the local paper seems to disagree. To vent their displeasure, they've placed the reason they can't report it, right on the front page.

Swindon Centric Says ; Here's a chance to fill the paper with insightful, detailed, analytical stories from that seldom used department 'investigative reporting'. Anyone at the Advertiser remember what that is?

Did anyone at the Adver ever know ?
