    So barely two hours after he found out that his daughter is probably one of the bodies discovered this afternoon, Sky News are already interviewing the father of one of the Ipswich killing girls. I couldn’t bring myself to listen, I hope the interviewer was sensitive, but isn’t it a bit early to be doing stuff like that?

    At the end of the day the father had to agree to the interview and so as long as he wasn’t ‘harrassed’ into the interview I see no problem

    I suppose he is just trying to help. I saw him on ITV News. The whole story just makes me feel ill, its just awful, really frightening

    I don’t know if a bereaved parent is necessarily the best judge of whether he’s ready to do an interview, and I presume that Sky would have got in touch to ask him for one rather than the other way around. If so, that seems insensitive to me. I can quite believe that Joe public would easily feel obliged to do an interview when confronted by the cameras, even if he didn’t really fancy it.
    From what I’ve heard, he was ranting about what he’d do if he got his hands on the killer etc.

    He had been on earlier in the day and seems the type who enjoys being infront of a camera.

    If the women of Ipswich werent worried before they will be now as Sky News angel of doom.Kay Burley, has descended on the town!

    Did you catch her question at the press conference? Lots of other reasonable questions, then “Kay Burley, Sky News. The killer seems to be saying “catch me if you can”. What do you say to him?”. Class.

    Are you really suggesting that someone can not judge when they are ready to do an interview. For God’s sake, please I think the man is quite capable of deciding when he wants to give an interview. As for sky contacting them – it is their job to do that – and no doubt they wouold have given it the sensitivity that is so rightly deserves

    Yes, I am suggesting that it’s possible somebody may not be the best judge of whether it’s time for them to go in front of the camera, and judging by his performance I think there is reasonable grounds for saying that. I saw an interview they did with him earlier today and he was still not really able to speak properly.
    As for Sky contacting him, sure, it’s their job to do it, but in my view they should give immediate family members time to deal with their grief before even asking.

    If I worked at Sky News I wouldn’t like to get on the wrong side of Kay Burley
