Sir: Your front page picture (14 March) of the schoolchildren and their teacher from Dunblane has made me feel physically unwell.

As a mother with children at a local school I cannot imagine how your picture has affected the bereaved parents and other relatives of those killed and injured. I am also a doctor and I know that my colleagues in the vicinity of Dunblane will have problems dealing with the stress that such trauma will have caused in relatives and local people. The actions of the media in such situations in reinforcing the images does nothing to help people recover.
