I've no idea, i'm sure he believed it to be true by his reaction, regardless, the overwhelming majority are relived and hopeful.

But the speed with which this stuff spreads, with genuine empathy behind them, is frightening and i learned my particular lesson today and i daresay his poor mate really bloody learned it.

Totally agree. People need to be responsible and respectful of a family and friends.

His "mate" was only interested in spreading the news as fast as possible so everyone knew his "mate" was his "mate".

I'm so gutted. I'd better text a load of people who don't know him to tell them the bad news, just in case someone else might text them first.

Did he get many likes on Facebook?

I won’t soil this thread further by engaging in a slagging match with you, but you do realize that at some point someone will actually be the first to post such news? Actually I doubt you do.

You may well be right, but a lot of people out here know Liam or have met him over the years, there’s a great deal of sadness about the struggle he is in, so most people will take each other at face value about such things. And he told me in person, this wasn’t a social media like-fest.

What’s the alternative in life, we presume everyone is lying about such things until we see are rocking up to a removal?

The alternative is not to spread lies on the INTERNET.

Most of us are hoping that won't be the case but if the time comes we will wait for confirmation from somewhere that isn't Twitter or a 'mate.'
