Stress and suicide brought to the fore

15th June 2012 at 01:00

I was somewhat taken aback at the sight of my old school tie illustrating the 1 June cover story. The article was well written and timely, but please use an imaginary tie if you must and not a pupil's for a story that covers adult suicide. I have many happy memories of my time at the school and it seems a shame that a good article has to be spoiled by sensationalist graphics.
