Ed walks from the gallery back to the newsroom and comments on the breaking news that had to be covered. The story about the Dewsbury stabbings, mentioned in the headlines at the beginning of the programme, developed as they were on air and he had to get legal advice on what could be said later in the programme.
After every Channel 4 news bulletin there's a debrief| in the newsroom by one of the senior Channel 4 news editors. Tonight Martin Fewell, deputy editor of Channel Four news, who watched the programme in his office, comments on the stories and tells the team how he thinks they were handled. On the final item about the psychology of panic buying, he suggests that it would have been a good idea to have had a psychologist who disagreed with Oliver James.
Jon says that it was a heavy news day but because most of the big stories were foreign it meant that the newsroom wasn't so busy. Ed concludes that the programme was 'rounded and worked well'. Twelve and a half hours after arriving at work, he takes the tube home but will be back in the newsroom the next day to prepare for Friday's programme!
