Sky News on the Alton Towers crash

This definitely goes in the books of some of the worst "interviews"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kke3h2UeH3I
Just an added bit of info, a petition kicked off to get Kay Burley sacked and Ofcom are apparently "investigating" the interview due to a high amount of complaints they have received.
I wonder what's going to happen Shocked

Re: Sky News on the Alton Towers crash

I've seen the video, if Kay Burley & Sky news think that was a suitable way to conduct there interview they will end up finding no one wishing to speak to them in future.
Good to hear Ofcom are looking in to it.

An absolute hatchet job by Kay Burley.
What the hell did she expect the guy to say....the investigation is ongoing!!

My jaw dropped when she asked if he had spoken to them in person.
Yeah, I'm sure he had a fantastic conversation with them while they were in a hospital bed? Huh
The lack of respect to him and the unfortunate people involved in the crash is astounding...

Re: Sky News on the Alton Towers crash

Seems like she got away with something previously

Why would Ofcom allow this? She's completely unprofessional
