A personal message from Editor Nick Woodhead

Have your say

The Lynn News of Tuesday, April 22, included a comment article by weekly columnist The Big Eye entitled We endure a Hillsborough on our roads every 18 days.

While the piece sought to draw attention to the numbers of road traffic tragedies, the reference to the Hillsborough memorial and the tone of the article were wholly inappropriate and running it was ill-advised on my part.

The columnist and this newspaper in no way intended to offend anyone involved in Hillsborough or affected by the tragedy and we would like to apologise profusely for any offence caused.
