Wessex News Agency

In such a sad week, it seems unthinkable that someone would want to profit out of tragedy.

However, that is exactly what Jim Hardy of the Wessex News Agency has been doing.

Hardy, has trawled Facebook, Powerboat Racing World and UKOPRA.co.uk, lifted images of Kevin Edmondson, his partner and raceboat and then sold them to British newspapers.

I have spoken to the Daily Telegraph and the Daily Mirror today, their response was one of horror and they have withheld payment.

A quick Google search shows that Hardy / Wessex News Agency has ‘form’ for this and was banned by the Sun back in 2004.

This article will Google quickly and hopefully serve to show what a scumbag Jim Hardy is.
