A Chesterfield woman has said she was ‘so close to being in the wrong place at the wrong time’ following a terrorist attack in France. Tracy Mitchell, a former journalist at the Derbyshire Times, has a second home in the small village of Rieux-en-Val, just a 20 minute drive from the sleepy town of Trèbes. The town was rocked when radical Islamist gunman, 25-year-old Redouane Lakdim, killed four people and injured 16 others in a shooting-spree which included taking hostages at the Super-U supermarket. Ms Mitchell, a lecturer in journalism at Hillsborough College, said she always uses the store and was planning a trip to the same supermarket less around 24 hours later. She said she was hours away from the French resort when news of the attack filtered through.

Horrific. I was actually looking at a picture of a London Underground train about 30 miles away from London when 7/7 happened. Little did I know it might have BLOWN UP IN MY FACE!

I was travelling through the Pont D'Alma exactly 24 hours before we were all cruelly robbed of the People's Princess. Now that's what I call a close shave.
Funny enough, I was coming home after a big feed and a night on the sauce myself that night. Luckily, my driver was on the Fanta all evening, or it could have been a two-fer.

No wonder that print media is dying.
According to police, a van had collided with a wall.

True but after hitting two cars hard enough to rip the engine out of one. No mention of the van driver having run off, or photos of the two wrecked cars, which I know the Herald has. And despite the article, casualties were taken to hospital. One had had a pacemaker fitted a few days earlier.
I know this as I was near enough to hear the bang. So how can I trust the accuracy of the other articles?
