Re: Dear BBC
I can't speak for the BBC News website, I don't look at it, but there has been extensive coverage of the floods, all over the country, from the beginning on BBC TV news. As new developments have occurred, people trying to find accommodation, the insurance repercussuions etc, they heave been dealt with too. You can't just keep putting the same stuff on the news all the time, they have a limited amount of time and there is other stuff around the world like soldiers being killed in Iraq. It's a tough balance to find but if you watch ITV News, you'll see a very similar balance. A bit like when Thatcher's govt were up in arms about the coverage the sinking of the Belgrano got, and when they conducted an in-depth enquiry, they found the BBC to be exactly the same as other broadcasters. By this token, yes, the 1st time London was affected by the floods (I know, not nearly as bad as Gloucs for example), this was highlighted in the news. And yes, partly because it is the capital city! I think the balance has been pretty good though.
