    Ronke Phillips. I would like to thank you for the news reel cover you did for London Tonight this week covering the Azelle Rodney Police Shooting 2005 and the info relating to the Inquiry. Its been a long 5 year wait and after seeing your news item which i thought painted a clear and consice chain of events. I wish this news had gone out 5 years ago, because i`m positive that we would have had a lot more support. I take my hat off to you Ronke. Well done. I hope you will keep in touch and do a follow up as i am not giving up on my son Azelle. Too many people cared about him, the police have been covering up this and many other injustices and they can no longer get away with it. Please keep in touch if you can. Thank You.

    I totally agree. Ronke is definetly breaking new ground. I respect her as a black investigative journalist. She has certainly made an impact in my community from people of all cultures and backrounds. Her name just sticks out because she tells it like it is.
