I made an error in a previous post. I said that when we travelled on the Eurostar between London and Paris, we were travelling at 180kph. I was wrong. It would seem we were travelling at 180mph, considerably faster. No wonder it was so hard to see the French countryside.
By lunch time today, GMT plus 11, the Australian radio, tv and local online newspaper were awash with news of a fire in the tunnel between Dover and Calais.
I thought I would take a peek and see what the English online papers were saying. I checked two before I was distracted to something else. There was nothing in either paper.
It is now headline news at The Independent. Had I have got to the BBC, I would guess there would have been a report there.
Perhaps our media is not as bad as I might think, in fast reporting anyway.
