That's just not true. It was there for over 12 hours. It was on the front page of the website and Top Stories section of the app from about 6:20pm until about 07:00am and had over 1m page views.

We didn’t “replace” the Donald Trump story with news of Leslie Grantham’s death. We switched after leading for several hours on Trump to the NAO report on Universal Credit. I’d say that was another issue that mattered too. But not sure it’s really worth continuing this discussion

I don’t think that’s fair. As well as leading the site for longer just compare and contrast how much we have written about Donald Trump to how many stories we’ve done that mention Leslie Grantham

No. it really wasn't fleeting. You may have missed it, but It was either our lead story or in the top stories section of our website and app across all of our editions in the UK and internationally for at least 12 hours. That's how it was read by over 2m browsers.

From a different angle it looks like they're rings of smoke caused by explosions.

Hi. This is our policy on bylines which we haven't changed. Hope that helps explain.

Sorry you missed it. It led the website and app in the UK and internationally for several hours yesterday and was read by nearly two million browsers.

I’d argue that it had public value. We interviewed experts to try to explain a recent phenomenon.

Hello I'm sorry that you've been affected by this change. One of my colleagues in our product team posted this blog last month explaining why we stopped supporting the Kindle fire BBC News app

Thanks to all those who have read and shared Jacob’s story (as well as those who helped in its creation). His family and friends seemed pleased and I got to speak on (sorry about that).

We didn't ignore it. It was on the front page, UK index, politics index and led the Business index. As you can see it was also among the most read stories on Tuesday night. You can still find it on our Brexit index or by following Brexit in the app.

It was published on the website at 14:24. It's actually leading the Business index, on the Politics index, on the UK index and on the front page.
