Journo Award

Goes to whoever wrote the following, "Council fined after child injured at Discovery Museum."

Leaving aside that the piece doesn't bear the author's name (he/she may not have been able to do anything about that), the piece contains facts (relevant law) and figures (costs and fine), viz,

"Newcastle City Council pleaded guilty to breaching Section 3(1) of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.

It was fined £12,000 and ordered to pay costs of £7,733.

As for the story itself: it tells of a young girl being injured by an exhibit at a museum. She required immediate surgery and follow-up surgery.
