    They started getting a video from the area around 23:00, the rescue was continueing through the night and there was still breaking news and it was important so why no extended coverage with 2 presenters and the newswall as they have done for important news at other times?

    because in comparison to things like starvation in sudan (although rarely mentioned) this is not big important news

    Actually it pains me to say it as I have watched Sky News since the good old days ( Chisolm, Mann, Calister, Scott, Glencourse et al ) but Sky were awful covering the Boscastle flood.

    ITV NC and BBC 24 were miles ahead. I realise that they have local newsrooms but I remember Jeremy breaking the news during Live At Five yet they did not have live pictures when I went to bed at about 23:30
