Well done Alex Thomson. Channel 4's newshound spent most of yesterday afternoon chasing down former-Sun editor Kelvin MacKenzie over his infamous "The Truth" front page following the Hillsborough disaster.

It seems MacKenzie, now a professionally irate pundit, hasn't been too keen to chat, so the tenacious Thomson door-stepped him at home. First at his front door and then again as he tried to slip away in a Mercedes.

"Please Alex, this isn't reasonable," pleaded MacKenzie. Not content with his story for the evening news, the door-stepping scourge took to Twitter to berate MacKenzie some more. Thomson followers were split on whether he was a crusading hack in search of justice or a petty attention-seeker.

Either way, it made great telly.
