Mirror exposes 'vulture' hospital porter
The Daily Mirror today condemned a hospital porter (Ayman Shalash - pictured) as a "vulture" for offering pictures of one of the the drug trial victims in return for £2,000. While this is certainly a reprehensible move I wonder whether the story would be different had the Mirror got hold of the pictures. Some of the tabloids the previous day used movie stills of the Elephant Man and it would be surprising if any red-tops could really resist an exclusive first picture.
