Singing Kettle Caught up in Whitehaven Tragedy

A tricky one, this. Do you alert newsdesks that popular, Scottish kids entertainment group, The Singing Kettle, had been due to perform in Whitehaven at the time of the shooting rampage by Derrick Bird, which claimed a dozen lives. It is undoubtedly a line that will interest some readers. Or do you leave well alone? 

Pity the media release that was sent – including a quote of what it was like to be caught up in the inevitable frenzy – couldn't resist plugging the group's “week long tour of venues in England through to next Sunday”, and came with a cheery promotional pic.
