When news is a numbers game


Sir, – Would someone tell me the logic of chasing down the Euromillions lottery winner? News crews and photographers are sent to the shop where the ticket was purchased. The breathless reporter wonders who it could be and give us updates on the speculation. Why? Is it to share the joy? Of course not. It is sheer nosiness and actually none of our business. – Yours, etc,
