I am still deeply saddened by this news, but I would just like to ask how Newsround will take this news? There was slight uproar when Mark Speight died with the way his death was covered by Newsround.
Entirely different situations though.
Mark Speight killed himself and the Newsround issue was only caused due to the language used, or not used, as the case may be.
Elisabeth Sladen's died from cancer most probably, since she's suffered from it for some time.
Newsround has copious archived reports on its website about cancer, youngsters living with cancer and also the death of Jade Goody, who died from cancer. Not an alien concept to the viewership or readers to the website.
