Not their finest moment certainly :evil:

BBC reportage wrote:The attention around Lesley Brown's pregnancy brought with it concerns for her baby's safety.
At a celebration to mark Louise Brown's 30th birthday one of the scientists who pioneered the fertility treatment revealed Mrs Brown had been forced to go into hiding.
Prof Robert Edwards said in an interview in 2008: "We were concerned that she would lose the baby, the foetus, because the press were chasing Mrs Brown all over Bristol where she lived.
"So secretly Patrick Steptoe hid the mother in his car and drove her to his mother's house in Lincoln - the press didn't know where she was."
Mrs Brown recounted that once she was in Oldham hospital reporters tried a variety of methods to sneak into her room from a bomb hoax to posing as cleaners.
Once Louise was born it made front-page headlines all over the world.

Search for lost camera owner goes viral

Tens of thousands of internet users have joined the search for the owner of a lost camera after an image of him was published online.

Netherlands man Roland van Gogh posted a photo from the camera on his Facebook page this week starting a search for the owner.

The photo shows the camera's owner cycling with a blonde woman and has since been posted on other social media sites

Mr van Gogh said his father-in-law found the red Nikon Coolpix camera on June 20 at the train station in Amsterdam Amstel.

The photos show a trip throughout Europe from about May 7 and a visit to Amsterdam from June 15.

Definitely not journalisms finest hour. Jack Cohen gave a fantastic talk at the last UK Discworld convention about the science leading up to Louise's birth as he was personally involved in the project that led to it.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..
