I removed it. I don't think the number of people who share a story on an online news site actually counts as meaningful news. —Tom Morris (talk) 23:59, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

Review of revision 1680639 [Passed][edit]

Had I but thought of it before publication, I'd have removed the words "with drug possession" from the headline, shortening it with no significant loss of information. Oh well; next time. --Pi zero (talk) 03:54, 2 November 2012 (UTC)
There was a significant problem with getting a second source as pretty much every media source was basing their version of the story on the Greater Manchester Police report. --Rayboy8 (my talk) (my contributions) 07:27, 2 November 2012 (UTC)
