The staff of London Lite were sad to see Bo Wilson leave 10 days ago. A reporter on the free-sheet – though not on staff – she had also stepped up to a desk job when needed. Understandably, she jumped at the chance when offered a staff job elsewhere as a deputy news editor, and duly trotted off on holiday.

Poaching Ostler, known to some as "Tiny Tears", would be a coup for Coleridge and have a neat symmetry.
