    I was quite surprised during the reporting of the Glasgow building collapse that Sky News did not have anyone on the scene for quite a while.

    Both ITV News and News 24 had pictures from the scene long before Sky did.

    ITV are actually getting quite good at this breaking news thing.

    Maybe because both ITV and BBC have regional variations of their channels and hence have reporters/cameras nearer Glasgow than Sky do – Sky’s channels are regional and hence probably don’t have as many people dotted around the UK ready to report. Although they do probably have more people dotted around the world than BBC or ITV do.

    I think that they may have more people around the world than ITV News, they never in a million years have anywhere near the amount of people that the BBC have in foreign locations. I think that the whole of Sky News’ staff will total less than the BBCs foreign team.

    I think somtimes this is where Sky falls downs! Regional Help!

    itv News Channelhave just had Scotland Today live for 30 mins with Sarah Heaney, John MacKay and Shereen Nanjiani! With BBC News 24 had Reporting Scotland lice for 15 mins with Jackie Bird!

    Maybe Sky should look into Regional News?

    Maybe Sky should look into Regional News?

    Perhaps with the developments in Ireland this would be the next step?

    i think that this coverage has been total crap this is sky at its worse for quite a while!! I think they need teams located arounded the country ready to go live at any moment. Today has not shown sky to be “news channel of the year”

    i think your spot on there kaylover, sky’s coverage has been dismal compared to ITV and BBC NEWS 24.

    sky showed the same looped footage they had for almost 4 hours today.

    Sky’s coverage has been embarrasingly awful. Why could they not get a live shot any quicker? It was very unprofessional for them to be talking to James Mathews for so long on the phone, not having him in vision. I will be astounded if viewers did not turn over in their thousands to News 24, which was very good this afternoon.

    Sky pride themselves on Breaking News, today they have been rubbish.
