Use the 5ws (who, where, what, why, when) in opening of story,ideally first one or two paragraphs

Ensure the story centres on the most up-to-date developmentse.g. Boyzone singer Stephen Gately has been found dead...Apost-mortem is to be held... Boyzone singer Stephen Gately diedof natural causes

Use the present tense used where possible. Avoid ‘was’ in theintro. Instead use ‘is’ ‘has been’ or ‘will be.’
