After a helicopter crashed in central London last Wednesday, the London Evening Standard found a photo snapped by a witness named Craig Jenner and shared on Twitter. Unable to obtain permission from Jenner prior to its paper going to the press, the Evening Standard went ahead and published the image on its front page.

The London Evening Standard wasn’t the only one; there were Caters News, the Daily Mail, the Guardian, the Press Association, the Sun, and Sky News.
