Peter Worthington has had an amazing life. And his obituary, which he wrote himself, certainly has an arresting opening line.
Yesterday was a significant day in the history of journalism as familyÂ courts in England and WalesÂ opened their doors to journalists for the first time. They did not open the doors wide. In some cases they opened them onlyÂ slightly and slammedÂ them closed as if panicking at theÂ prospect of openness. There isÂ aÂ long way to go before cases involving children taken into care, adoption, divorce, emergency protection orders etc. can beÂ reportedÂ comprehensively.
