Police and KU ask students to help fight drug dealers

Brilliant bit of journalism by The River about attempts by the Metropolitan Police and Kingston University to clamp down on drug dealing in the local area.
We especially loved how they gathered quotes from a number of different parties, including the police and students.

By Katherine Corneilson for PI Media
Well, the column is called Unpopular Opinion and it sure is. Yet we salute bravery at the SPA!

Commercial road closed following suspected machete attack
By Paisley Tedder for The Galleon
Another great piece of news journalism there. The Galleon have constructed a fantastic, informative article which really draws a reader in.
And to top it all of, they’ve made a headline which at once tells the reader everything they need to know, yet also makes them want to read more.
