Hello Yetis! Here are today's good and bad PR examples...
There is some great celebrity news today, that’s had the papers leaping for joy. Singer Lily Cooper (or Allen as we’ll always know her) has given birth to her second child – a baby girl named Marnie Rose. The pop star, whose middle name is also Rose, is said to have given birth on Tuesday, which means Marnie shares her birthday with Lily’s musical heroes Bowie and Elvis – awwww we see a future star in the making!
Lily tweeted this morning to thank everyone for their support saying ‘Quite overwhelmed by all the well wishing going on. THANKYOU everybody x x x’
The Sun reported today that the family are ecstatic about providing a little sister for Ethel, who was born in November 2011.
There may be some stressed souls in London’s Metropolitan police stations today, as it was revealed yesterday that Britain’s biggest police force is to axe 800 detectives and close 65 prisons as part of the £500m cuts to the force.
The Met also plans to sell its famous New Scotland Year HQ and instead offer services in Post Offices, large stores and even cafes! The force believes these are places which people could talk to the police about crimes, buy licenses and report lost property.
The cuts have been heavily criticised with fears that crime will ‘go through the roof’. However, Scotland Yard disagrees and feels the cuts will benefit the public because hundreds of former CIDs will be dispatched onto our streets, directly tackling crime.
