Congratulations to the Times for putting this piece of intellgence on the front page, coupled with a reasonably prominent right-hand page lead.
Last Monday the Times found itself in the sole company of the Daily Star in declining to use Jagger's photograph on the front page. Today it is the only paper to give him the prime slot.
Everyone had a lot to say about the death of Jagger last week, as well they might, given that it was supposed to have been precipitated at the world's premier dog show. The story made the splash for the Mirror and Sun and while the Times preferred Paloma Faith for its front-page picture, there was plenty of room for Jagger's demise inside.
But, as Gameoldgirl noted last week, something didn't feel right. There were too many contradictory theories being bandied about by the owners and breeders - even allowing for their understandable distress. As an onlooker it seems as though they were desperately firing scattershot in search of an explanation that would not point to any negligence on their part and Crufts got caught in the crossfire.
So now we know that Jagger could not have been poisoned at the show, how have the papers reported it today? Here are the cuttings:
And while we're talking dogs, whatever happened to that petition about the supreme champion?
