SET having editorial area issues again. Lead story from Hither Green, which is well within BBC London's remit, the alleged killed burglar was also from the BBC London area.

A London story with a tenuous connection to their region.

ITV News Meridian have just had a report on the return of World of Sport Wrestling.

It's being filmed at Epic TV in Norwich (the old Anglia TV studios), and the report was by Natalie Gray (an Anglia reporter), and the report didn't seem to have any relevance to the Meridian region, so it just seems like nothing more than a promotion for a network programme.

It's not the first time they've done this sort of thing. They've had similar reports before for things like Dancing on Ice.

Meridian only has to show a certain amount of local news during their bulletin, otherwise they can pad it out with copy from other regions, which is the case for the majority of ITV regions except London, Channel and Granada.

Another London story on SET this afternoon from Bexley. They have a thing for covering outer SE London stories, including anything from Biggin Hill. They also covered the Hither Green burglary, despite being well in BBC London's editorial patch.
