    I think I saw Lorna Dunkley with Paul Harrison in Levington this morning, with Julie Etchingham at Martlesham.

    Dermot Murnaghan was in Ipswich for BBC Breakfast.

    They all seem to be doing live broadcasts from Ipswich. Mark Austin did the Evening News from outside a police unit, prop the same for late news

    I didn’t think Sky would’ve bother sending a presenter to Suffolk at the weekend, but i’ve noticed Chris Roberts is there. Was anyone else there for Sky?

    yes Colin was there from 6 to 12pm when Chris took over.

    It’s all so pointless as they are literally repeating the same things over and over – nothing has changed.

    And Maxine Mawhinney in Ipswich for BBC News 24 wearing a rather bright red fleece and anorak. First time I’ve ever seen her present from on location.

    I never thought I would get bored of watching Colin Brazier but as there are no new developments today its the same thing about every 20 mins

    The police statement announcing that Steve Wright had been charged with 5 murders was made at 10.15pm. It was covered live on the BBC Ten O’Clock News, BBC News 24 and Sky News – each with different coverage. BBC One and Newsnight had Richard Bilton outside Suffolk Police HQ, while BBC News 24 had Chris Eakin presenting live from inside the press conference with analysis from Margaret Gilmore. Sky had Colin Brazier presenting from Martlesham and Martin Brunt covering the story.

    Another side note: last week a newspaper journalist called up Suffolk Police to enquire about the latest on the case, and was advised that he should call Martin Brunt, as “he seems to know everything before we do”. He really is one of Sky’s strongest assets in my opinion.

    I have nothing but praise for Martin Brunt. He has done an excellent job over the last few weeks, and he has be on for hours and hours each day. Im glad to see he seems to have disappeared off for Xmas, nobody deserves a break more on Sky than Martin!

    Agreed, Brunt often looks put upon but he’s tenacious and straightforward.

    I’ve a big issue with this news story though. All this OB anchoring quickly took on a different flavour. Often I didn’t find myself being told the news as watching a ‘For Your Consideration’ type presentation with featured newsreaders keeping one eye on the RTS TV Journalism Awards. Ugh

    Jonna Gosling presenting from outside the police station, during a BBC 1 news special. (Wed 11am)

    Anna Botting is presenting live from outside the court of the trial of Steve Wright. Martin Brunt is also in ipswich, and David Crabtree is inside court.

    Sky are using a new background for their graphics.

    I cannot believe these murders took place over a year ago, where does the time go?
