Great potential coverage, shame about the link going down, at least they mentioned the PLEDGE SCHEME!

They need to get Smiler on the case with their kit! Gremlins in 558's cabin - he's the man to sort them!

Fingers crossed they record a piece for later broadcast. Due on the tea-time news and evening news too, I believe.
