BBC News 24 - Personify's everything that is wrong with rolling news. Fixed camera angle of burning fuselage - but crucially from a distance so no action to comment on, but none the less real time, people are dying and being saved..reporter, "So, can you tell us something about the airport." "I can tell you it has 3 terminals.."

The world is mad!

OMG - I get so angry at reporters at times like this.

On a happier note sky news are reporting that all passengers and crew are safe

Missed all of this - just switched on Sky now. Thank God they all survived. Cannot imagine how terrified they must have been.

Last night all I could think of were the families or relatives who could've been watching the pictures live while listening to the drivel the reporters were spouting.

Sky alerts brought this up last night and it sounded horrid. Glad to hear that everyone has survived.
