Particularly given the Damilola Taylor result dominating the papers and the airport security alert radio and TV..

In comparison to the large and instant flow of stories following last month's conviction of Sarah Porter – where someone she'd had sex with heard rumours about her being HIV+, knew they hadn't been infected, but complained to the police who launched a year-long investigation into her sex life until they found one who had been – I can only find three reports on this on Google News.
