Monday 1st June
It was a pleasure to be on the M8 heading west from Edinburgh to Susan Boyle’s home town.
The sun was rising bright and fiery in the rear view mirror. The low mist in the fields looking soft and magical.
We knew that Susan would not be at home because she was in the Priory Hospital in London.
Rachel Harrison had come up from Manchester to do broadcasts about what the people in Blackburn thought about how Susan had done on Saturday night on “Britain’s got Talent”.
We did a few very straightforward broadcasts with no technical hitches, no stress from locals and not a sign of the police.
Rachel talked to a couple of Susan’s neighbours on air.
By the time we got ready to leave at the end of the programme the rest of the press were starting to arrive.
I think that they would have a long wait.
Ever since Susan hit the headlines with her fantastic voice there have been photographers camped outside her house almost twenty four hours a day.
