Poor Grim (our version). "Slow year,  not needed to update the front page in ages, I'll just go offline for a few days, what can possibly happen?"

Wow, Didn't expect a third hit this week.

Didn't get a breaking news tweet from any of the breaking news accounts of BBC, Sky News, LBC or the Mirror. I wonder who else on the list wouldn't get at least one of them.

There is a Telegraph obit, but you have to register to see it all.

BBC website has nothing about the death of prize-winning author, however it does have stories on the deaths of 'Internet sensation' grumpy cat and a blonde former WWE wrestler and playboy cover girl with large breasts. Skewed priorities?

Maybe the BBC updates its obits once a day or less frequently after 18h00 UTC. Ashley Massaro's death was reported 14 hours ago, Grumpy Cat died on Tuesday. The BBC website posted Gillian Lynne's obituary nine hours after I read on Twitter about her passing.

For some time now the BBC news page has been becoming more like a low-rent magazine.

FFS - BBC's omission on this is a sorry lapse. Not bemoaning the coverage of Grumpy Cat but...

 

Still so sign of Wouk

The Guardian aren't running the story either. I suspect that they're both awaiting confirmation from a verified source before running the story.
