Don't think that this has been mentioned yet, but here is how, as far as I know, Sky have covered the events today, been blanket coverage all day thus far:



Studio



Martin Stanford on a very long shift, on at 10 when I first switched on, and went through until 5

With him, Allan King and then Lucy Alexander. Colin Brazier from 5, presumably will also so the Sky Report. I believe Sportsline is dropped.



In East London



Chris Roberts began presenting around 12, but only for short segments, it was all mostly studio based. Now hosting Live at Five from the scene

Ursula Errington



Cent. London Hospital:



New Reporter, Tom something, sorry I didn't catch his surname.



Scotland Yard



Martin Brunt



Political Reaction:



Westminster- Niall Patterson and Peter Spencer

Rome (with Blair)- Glen O'Glaza

do we know anything about what keith graves just said on sky about this...? apparantly he can't tell us what US news stations are saying about it because of various laws here.. presumably FOX is directly calling them acolytes of bin laden or describing the 'chemical weapon' in more detail..? anyone know more? ..i could just take a look at some websites.

A bidding war broke out among TV broadcasters today over mobile phone video footage of the anti-terrorist police raids in London's Forest Gate.

ITV News secured the exclusive rights to a member of the public's footage for a "substantial amount of money" and broadcast the 20-second clip on the lunchtime news. The pictures will appear again on this evening's bulletins.



The footage was taken at around 4.30am this morning, half an hour after 250 police officers, some in protective bio-chemical suits, raided a terraced property in Lansdown Road in the Forest Gate area of east London. One man was shot during the incident.

The bidding war was mainly between the BBC and ITV. ITV were the ones who tracked down the person with the video footage and paid that person ?4,500. I believe the BBC's final offer was around ?4,000.
