You can almost sense the BBC's relief at having another news story to lead on
I turned on the Radio 4 Six o'clock news expecting the lead to be the "sleaze story", but the headline is that a 41-year-old man has been charged with the murder of Rachel Nickell on Wimbledon Common. A full 5 minutes on this interesting but minor story before the sleaze story. Go on BBC try and pretend your man won't be destroyed by sleaze. The fact that the sleaze scandal story ran for longer on the news shows which is the bigger story.
