Train hits tree on railway line

Bournemouth Echo: Train hits tree on railway line Train hits tree on railway line

A TRAIN has hit a fallen tree in the New Forest.

The incident happened at around 9pm this evening near Hinton Admiral.

The South West Trains service that was hit by the tree was on the Brockenhurst to Bournemouth route.

Passengers faced delays after a tree fell on the line in the area earlier in the evening.

The tree was cleared, but the following train struck a tree in the same area.

Commuters face delays of more than an hour as staff clear the scene.

A South West Trains spokesperson later said no-one is believed to have been injured and staff were in the process of removing the tree from underneath the train.

Also, the A35 at Wootton was partially blocked both ways due to a fallen tree near the B3058 Holmsley Road.

I thought exactly the same and was going to post something similar but to be honest I'm getting bored with pointing out the bleeding obvious to those that are supposed to be professional writers, ie journalists (note, the article has now been changed).

And it's definitely getting worse. I don't think a day passes now without us, the reader, having to endure shameful standards of reporting be those appalling terminology, poor phraseology or generally sloppy and colloquial language. It's clear that there's virtually no effort within this newspaper to deliver a quality or articulate level of reporting. In fact sometimes I get the impression they couldn't care less.

The question is why?

I hear what you're saying but media studies is a massively subscribed to degree and is renowned for not providing graduates with jobs. I cannot believe it's simply a case of not paying enough, there are countless wannabe journalists that would work for next to nothing simply to build their cv and gain experience. And write with clarity and precision too, I refuse to accept that the standard currently on offer is a benchmark for what's available in the market place. Hence my question, why are we continually reading such substandard work.
