Terry Hutt and Kay Burley - Scenes at the Lindo Wing as it's announced Catherine, The Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William are new parents after The Duchess gave birth to a baby girl. Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a daughter at 8.34am. The baby weighs 8lbs 3oz. - London, United Kingdom - Saturday 2nd May 2015
One of Sky News’ presenters, Kay Burley has been blasted for insensitivity, following her reporting on missing Welsh girl April Jones’ disappearance and alleged murder. Burley has been openly criticised for the manner in which she broke the news of the girl’s alleged murder to two volunteers in Machynlleth, who had been part of the voluntary search team.
The media had been briefed at a press conference just after 10:30am with the news that the suspect, Mark Bridger, had been arrested on suspicion of the murder of the five year-old girl. Until that point, he had only been arrested on suspicion of abducting her. Burley then turned to the volunteers and told them “They (meaning the police) don’t expect to find her alive.” Then, realising that she had wrongly assumed that they already knew this, said “OK, I didn’t know that you hadn’t heard. Let me just tell you what we have heard from the police, is that it’s now become a murder investigation… they don’t expect to find her alive. I’m sorry to have to tell you in circumstances like this. Would you like to say anything?”
As she speaks, the volunteers look visibly distraught and one said “If they haven’t found her, there’s a chance. Where there’s hope, there’s a chance. The other wept openly and both avowed to keep looking for April. Kay then asks how they are feeling, to which the reply is simply “numb.”

Sky News anchor Kay Burley is facing a backlash of criticism after she broke news of April Jones's alleged murder to volunteers still searching for the missing schoolgirl, with some describing her actions as being "insensitive bordering on cruel."
The journalist, who has worked on air for many years now, approached two volunteers who were lending a hand in the search for missing April during a live broadcast. Burley then proceeded to break the news to the pair live on air that police had just announced that they had arrested Mark Bridger on suspicion of murder. She then proceeded to ask the two on their opinions on the matter, both of whom revealed they had not heard the latest news and were clearly distressed after Kay told them the news, with the woman breaking down to tears.
This immediately sparked a storm on Twitter, with a number of people commenting on the incident. Tom Watson, Deputy Chair of the Labour Party, wrote: "Kay Burley: Insensitive bordering on cruel. Is breaking news so important that you have to forget your humanity?"
