For my second news story, I will be writing about a local grandfather from North Cornwall who had his pension money stolen from his wallet whilst he was in a swimming pool.
I found this potential story on Facebook, as the granddaughter of the man who had his money stolen posted about it. I then contacted her and asked if I could write up the story which she agreed to.
I have planned to meet with her this weekend to go over the story and gather quotes from her and possibly her grandfather. A locally based news story this would suit any local papers such as The Cornish Guardian, Western Morning News and The Cornishman.
