Sometimes it takes courage to watch the news headlines on Breakfast TV because there is just so much bad news about at the moment; and that is coming from a newspaper man. But I was rather struck by a lovely story on BBC Breakfast yesterday which certainly raised my spirits; it was a tribute to Tony Foulds, who narrowly escaped death as a child when a US air force bomber crashed into woodland in Sheffield during the Second World War. The plane had been badly damaged during a mission over Norway. The pilot managed to nurse the aircraft back to England; it was circling the park area where a young Tony Foulds was playing with his five friends. The pilot, to avoid the children, brought the aircraft down in some woodland. The ten crew all died.
