Private Eye worthy page layout

The protests in Ealing over the introduction of Low Traffic Neighbourhoods were reported in the Express newspaper on both Friday and Saturday, as hundreds of people marched to the town hall to object to the council’s plans.

Over the past few weeks there have been bollards and planters overturned and defaced; oil was poured along the road in an apparent attempt to handicap cyclists and council workers have been abused and threatened. According to a statement from Ealing Council, a number of people have been arrested on suspicion of causing criminal damage.

The page layout of Friday’s article was particularly unfortunate. Either their sub editor needs a refresher course on page layout or they live in Ealing and they agree with the protesters.
