Like the rest of the world, I was left stunned by news about the Malaysian plane being shot down and all its passengers being killed.
My heart goes out to every single person affected by this tragedy.
It’s sad enough when a plane crashes for any reason, such as weather conditions or mechanical failure.
But when you hear that this plane was shot down, it seems all the more shocking.
Last Friday I was working in the ITN newsroom in London as a reporter.
Every few minutes new information was coming through as experts tried to understand more about the situation.
I have to say it was all very difficult to digest.
I just hope the people responsible are tracked down and get what they deserve.
