Topic - Poor quality news reporting - accident at The Roaches

ianslade on 21 Apr 2014
A local news paper posted the following article on Facebook, leading to a page on their website.

I found that the story they wrote, appears to be accurate (I'm unaware of the facts surrounding the incident, other than what has been reported)

However they report the incident took place at The Roaches and posts a picture of nearby Ramshaw Rocks. I understand that it may be impractical to get a photographer to the venue, at the time of the rescue. However should a paper such as this not have stock images of the correct location (particularly when The Roaches is one of the busiest attractions in Staffordshire) or alternatively found a bystander who will have taken a picture?

The paper also poses the question on their Facebook Page,

"Do you think more needs to be done to monitor climbers?"

I am undecided why they would pose this question, because they would like a debate on the subject or because they are looking for grater interaction on their post? (Granted my post on here may aid that)

Your thoughts welcomed.
