Not yet an image of death but, at the very least, images of life changing injuries.

Stay classy DM...

There are a number of clips of the crash on the web but F1 has had them pulled own. Full marks to F1 for decency and compassion I hear you cheer, but, sadly, no. They are objecting to anyone using the footage without paying for it, they have sole copyright y'know. They must be making a few bob out there as the crash is syndicated.

To be fair to Sky they haven't shown any reruns of the race, and didn't show any footage of the accident.

Playing devils advocate here a bit, but the copyright/licensing argument could simply be a useful and convenent 'cookie cutter' reason for people to take it down.

They will have dealt with unofficial YouTube clips many times before, and this would be the obvious first route to have it removed, not least because youtube etc have easy systems to do it.

Well, this is lovely.

This is the harrowing final scene in the lives of James and Alex Gaskell. The picture, issued by Indian police, shows them surrounded by packs of the drugs that claimed their lives. Readers may find it distressing, but the Mail is publishing it, with the bodies pixellated, in the hope it will serve as a warning against the horrific dangers of casual drug use
The Mail is publishing it to rack up those page hits and comments. Horrible.

Pixellating their corpses makes it okay, I see.

I do find this squeamishness strange. After all, it could just as well be a pic of them asleep on the bed rather than dead.

Looks to me more like a half-baked excuse to me for printing more titillating snuff-porn.

Did British drug death couple die in 'Romeo and Juliet' suicide pact? Family fear young newlyweds may have killed themselves in despair at India's grinding poverty


Guess what? They've shown the picture of the bodies again. And that's a version of Romeo and Juliet I'm not familiar with.

The case has two points of congruence with a well-known story, ie two young people, dead at their own hands.

Two is the usual number of congruencies to allow the use of a popular story meme, although in the lower end of the tabloid range a single congruence can be used because readers are unable to follow the complexity of two or more points of comparisn.
