The Stoke Sentinel, along with other 'Reach' newspapers don't really employ journalists. They seem to employ young kids, who's only job is to trawl Twitter looking for local stories.
Hence they regurgitate stories from FLW.
If it's FLW, Ignore.
If it's a Reach newspaper, Ignore.
Makes me really glad that The EADT is still independent, and if you don't want to see them end up like the Stoke Sentinel, please, buy a physical copy of the EADT every time you can.
