According to the BBC “coroner, Michael Rose, called on magazines to stop the practice of showing pictures of “wafer-thin” models following the death of a 14-year-old girl in Somerset.

He recorded a verdict of misadventure at the inquest in Taunton.”

We may not like what they say, but coroners play a crucial role in safeguarding society. I hope the new chief conner will protect their independence.
