East Kent Mercury 2012: Readers pitched together to help families

Whilst on a two week placement at the East Kent Mercury in Deal I put together this feature on how the local community pulled together as a result of the Titanic disaster. This was to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the disasters and received good local feedback, allowing me to write a further follow up piece with new information.
