READING WEEPS

Commissioned by BBC Radio Berkshire, as an expression of the community's love, grief and solidarity, following the tragic events in Reading of 20 June 2020, when James Furlong, Joe Ritchie-Bennett and David Wails lost their lives, and many others had their lives changed forever.

Meanwhile, the regeneration of Wokingham town centre hit a new low, with the announced closure of Marks and Spencer.

 

Only one of these was a genuine outrage.
