Here’s one the Telegraph developed for themselves

Just to be fair to the Telegraph, here’s a little piece that they put together for today’s paper.

This wasn’t, as far as I know, due to copying apparently reliable people’s press releases.

Rather it was by the (comparatively) old-fangled journalistic technique of phoning people up (like me) and asking them what they think.

And then writing it up!

From the Daily Telegraph 6 Jan 2010

In the end, the problem for journalists is that they have to take things on trust, even when speaking to the apparently reliable!

And as for the story: there’s no doubt that some fish have died during the cold weather. It’s obviously sad for fish lovers of all stripe, though it may also be nature’s way of telling fish that there are some places they don’t really belong.
