After Dunblane: questions for the media and an answer to critics of gun clubs

Sir: The horror at Dunblane seems a prime example of an event where there is tension between public and media interest in the circumstances and the right to privacy of those caught up in the tragedy.

On such occasions would it not be feasible for the media to agree to pooling arrangements whereby the news-gathering was shared, reducing to a reasonable minimum the numbers of visiting journalists and photographers?
