BBC Insensitive..... or what......

I think that the pic on this item is a little "insensitive" ....
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-30003531
Should have been "cropped"... to remove the signpost....

I agree shutter, thats very insensitive.
Showing a "Thank you for driving carefully" sign right by the scene of an 8 year olds death... thats pathetic.
Shame on the BBC.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Still insensitive... because they could still have "blanked" out the words on the notice..... if they wanted to.....

I think it makes the picture more poignant, provoking discussion as it has here.
