This story made a segment on the BBC Radio 4 news (that's our J class news programme ) in the UK this evening, which is unusual for a consumer story. Maybe they were stringing from bigger attention in the US?

Thinking where I was on the road I reckon it would have been sometime between 18.20 and 18.40. Probably closer to 18.20.

Quite light hearted in an 'and finally' style, and taking the UA side more than the flyer one.

On the BBC main news program(27:54 in), quite nicely done.
