    120-400 children have been taken hostage at a school in Beslan (Russia)

    Sky News have sent Rachel Amatt to Beslan, and Wilf Owen’s been called into give his expert analyst on the siege.

    Not sure how Sky’s competitors are covering the news ?

    Two large explosions at the school tonight, Rachel thinks the second one sounded more like a bomb.

    Sky News at it’s worst at the time of an unfolding tragedy, yet again…

    Calm reporting from the scene counteracted by the usual hysterical rantings from the studio presenters.

    Martin Stanford unprepared to let facts, as they emerge, take priority over speculation and assumption.

    Hopefully the worst presenter of all in such circumstances as these…. Ms ‘Shriek’ Burley…. will be kept off our screens this afternoon.

    Rachel Amatt has been brilliant – the poor girl is completely out of breath, she is now inside the school.

    Rachel Amatt is doing a fantastic live reporting near the gym building at the moment. I don’t know on which terms they become correspondents, but she is for sure on the right way! She is showing such a dedication and courage in her live reports.

    agreed 100% – Rachel for Correspondent. Rachel’s cameraman is currently filming the scene’s inside the school.

    They have removed one of the hostage-takers from the scene (passed Rachel)

    Some bad news: Interfax is reporting that 5 children have died in the siege.

    Mark and Viv are now live from Sky Centre
