CHARLES GRAHAM - Take a moment to think of Jade

MANY column inches will be taken up in this paper and in media across the country as the shock waves of the fatal dog attack on Atherton schoolgirl Jade Anderson continue to reverberate.

Speculation is rife as to the exact circumstances surrounding this most terrible of tragedies, not least concerning the five dogs which fatally mauled her.

But on this page I just want everyone to think solely today of a poor young girl whose life has been cut short in the most sickening way and of the devastated family members who have been left behind.

I am sure I was not the only parent who, on hearing the news, gave their own child an extra few hugs this week.
