Twelve sister weeklies have turned their mastheads black in tribute to the victims of an air crash which police believe claimed 11 lives.
Johnston Press newspapers in Sussex have made the move out of respect for those who died when a vintage Hawker Hunter jet crashed on the A27 during Shoreham Airshow.
The Shoreham Herald has run a special tribute edition, front page pictured below, which will see a percentage of its sales donated to the victims.
Donations will also be made from sales of the other editions of the Herald – covering Lancing, Steyning and Worthing – as well as the Littlehampton Gazette.
The Shoreham edition features a 16-page pullout which contains tributes to the known victims, eyewitness accounts from those who saw the tragedy, coverage of a memorial church service, floral tributes, words of condolence from dignitaries including the Prime Minister and details of books of condolences that have been opened across the area.
The donations from the newspapers will be made to a special fund set up by the Sussex Community Foundation.
Writing in the Herald, editor Gary Shipton said while concerns and debate arising from the crash would be reported, the victims and the welfare of their families was the only thing which mattered this week.
He added: “This is a special edition of our title.
“It is designed to record the dreadful events of the past week but more than that to remember and pay tribute to everyone who has lost their life; and everyone who is suffering dreadfully as a consequence.
“I hope we have shown discernment in setting about our journalistic responsibility.
“While our websites across Sussex have properly and fully reported events as they became clear – honest and responsible communication is essential with the community at a time like this – in this permanent printed edition we have used photographs of the most distressing moments as sparingly as possible.
“Many we have chosen not to reproduce in print.”
The other titles to turn their mastheads black in tribute were the Bognor Observer, Chichester Observer, Crawley Observer, Midhurst & Petworth Observer, Mid Sussex Times, West Sussex County Times and West Sussex Gazette.
Gary concluded: “Now is the time for sombre reflection, for thinking of those who have lost loved ones and all who have been affected by what is one of the biggest tragedies to ever occur here in Sussex.
“And for remembering how strong a community Shoreham is – and why we will support one another no matter how dark the hour.”
