We were just going to leave this story totally alone, but then, announcing that West has called it off, Rose's solicitor had to go and say "She telephoned yesterday to say her engagement to Dave Glover was off, and that she wanted to give that young man his life back."
Rose West wanting to give someone their life back, eh? That's got to be a first.
Also, some sort of mirrored hat has to be raised to Reuters for the line:
killing a series of young women at their home in Gloucester."
True, maybe, but unduly an unduly ghastly turn of phrase.
