Quotes

"I think the awards itself is very good because it shines the spotlight on people who would otherwise might have been overlooked and it gives ordinary people the opportunity to get recognition for the extraordinary work they do" he said
...Gazzettino del Chianti , a local news outlet, Clooney was Alamuddin's date for the occasion, and not surprisingly, the Oscar winner was reportedly "affable, educated and nice with everyone."
The family’s solicitor is Mrs Emma Winkworth from the medical law team of Cumbrian law firm Burnetts. Mrs Winkworth said, "The Coroner found that there were a number of missed opportunities to diagnose Ashley's condition. It has been very difficult for the Porter family to listen to the evidence given at the Inquest over the last couple of days. They will now reflect upon what they have heard at the Inquest and decide on the best way forward in the coming weeks. The Porters' over-riding concern however is that no other family has to go through the devastating trauma that they have suffered.”"
He said: "We have removed the article from our website and will be contacting Mr Clooney's representatives to discuss giving him the opportunity to set the record straight."
