Not online but tuned in to Radio 1 in the car earlier to catch a lengthy discussion about Ellie Golding witnessing a supposed car crash. Fine for Radio 1 to spend a few minutes talking about that I thought, but then realised it was 12.48 so was either the 1st or 2nd story on the main lunchtime edition Newsbeat.
Now obviously Newsbeat has a different agenda and this story has been featured on ITV News at least today, but no way should it have been treated as the top story. It's "And Finally" at best.
Listening back, they actually lead with Caroline Flack stepping down for this series of Love Island, however I can see why the lorry story was high up in the billing, it has been a big story on my Twitter feed over the last day, I imagine it may have also been because of the opportunity they had in coincidentally having Ellie Golding performing in the Live Lounge today as well, so had the chance of an interview from an eyewitness.
