This is a normal post Comments are mostly from news agencies wanting to use his picture.
The Daily Mail will of course already have stolen it.

This is a normal post
Welcome to six hours of repeated videos, repeated interviews, your tweets and comments repeating the same thing and constant speculation from us and you.

"Yeah, a helicopter hit something and crashed..."
"I saw a helicopter hit something, well, i didn't actually see the helicopter, there's a fire here though..."
"I'm really far away from the place but i can see smoke in the distance, could be it or could be a different fire as i'm actually in Nottingham and looking north...."

Gripping.

This is a normal post I look forward to reading the kind of extensive, in-depth analysis
that can only come from sitting at the news desk, trawling Twitter for every inane "lol crash" tweet.

A guy just mentioned 7/7 in the same sentence as this crash.

I'm staying away from the news today.

This is a normal post Given modern media and mobile phone technology
I think we need to put the basics of filming on the National Curriculum:

1) Point the camera at what you want to film
2) Don't shake it around like you're having a fucking fit
3) If you have to pan, pan sllllooowwwwllllyy and steadily

This is a normal post Couple of extra ones
Don't just point the camera at what you want to film, keep it pointed at it.

Filming in portrait mode is punishable by death.

This is a normal post That police chief they interviewed a few minutes ago was remarkably calm while answering the stupid questions
I could tell he just wanted to say "fuck off and let us sort it out, we'll tell you everything when we actually know some facts!"

This is a normal post I like how on their front page they're showing a video of a guy running out of the fire, seemingly partly on fire himself.
Pretty fucking sick.

There 'probing' questions to the public are so angled towards 'we need to create something big!!' it's sick.

"We can see a motorcycle there, do you think that guy died?"
"Errr....dunno...."
"Damn. NEXT WITNESS!!!"
