Since a High Court judge ruled Gloucestershire County Council’s plans for our library service unlawful on Wednesday, there has been loads of media coverage – both local and national (including some rather worrying reaction from Cllr. Hawthorne).
We’ve tried to pull all the links together here (if we’ve missed any please send them our way or comment below). The story was also covered on BBC Points West and ITV West, but unfortunately we missed the links for those as they’re only active for 24 hours!
BBC Radio 4 World at One – As soon as she heard news of Wednesday’s ruling, bestselling novelist and FoGL supporter Joanna Trollope ‘dashed over to broadcasting house’ (in the words of her PA!) to do an interview about the victory.
BBC Radio Gloucestershire – Short interview with FoGL’s Demelza Jones at 00:47, recorded immediately after the ruling was announced.
BBC Radio Gloucestershire – Reaction on the breakfast show from Council Leader Mark Hawthorne from 1:07:19, followed by FoGL’s John Holland at 1:39:00. Recorded the morning after the ruling.
Gloucestershire Echo/Citizen – a great letter from FoGL’s Alice Ross who attended the whole of the court hearing.
