Regional daily runs yellow front page tribute to terror victim

Yellow stood out on the front page of a regional daily as it paid tribute to a victim of the Manchester terror attack.

The Lancashire Post splashed on Friday on the funeral of 18-year-old Georgina Callander, who was one of 22 people killed in the atrocity last month.

The front page featured a black and white photo of Georgina’s funeral procession, with any hint of yellow pulled out from the picture.

Georgia’s family, from the Lancashire village of Tarleton, had requested mourners wear the colour in her memory.

LEP yellow

Editor Gillian Parkinson said: “The idea to pull out the yellow colour in the front page came about when we saw the pictures and realised that everyone at Georgina’s funeral was wearing yellow or carrying something yellow, as requested by her family.

“We felt it was right that we should do something different on the front page to mark this and to offer our own tribute.

“We worked with Phil Smith and Kimberley Mogg in the JP Design Hub, providing them with the image and the idea.

“The front page has been well-received in the village where the funeral took place with several people contacting us to remark on how usual and fitting it was.”
