The opening headlines of the 18:30 South Today (Oxford) usually have the final headline being a pre-recorded insert by the Southampton presenter, with a (usually lighter / human interest / sport) story that will feature during the pan-regional latter half of the programme.
No such insert tonight. In fact, a grand total of just 2 headlines preceded the title sequence. The top story - about a murder in the Buckinghamshire village of Maids Moreton - dominated the Oxford sub-opt part of the programme.
I had started to wonder if it was going to be a full half-hour Oxford edition (as does happen occasionally when there's a big story in the sub-region), but it wasn't.
Look East (Cambridge) had the same top story - albeit much briefer coverage than on ST - with the somewhat tenuous qualifier that it was "near Milton Keynes". Maids Moreton is firmly in the Aylesbury Vale part of the county (about 19km west-SW of Milton Keynes, but only about 1.6km north of Buckingham).
I'm still a European.
