Many a blogger has taken great glee in the suffering of Telegraph hacks recently (myself included). But it gives me no pleasure to bring you genuinely distressing news from Buckingham Palace Road.
I'm told that Damian Reece, the Telegraph's head of business, has broken his neck after a fall at home which - while he has movement in his limbs - will necessitate an operation.
Only last week I had a (small) pop at Reece's City Comment. So I hope it doesn't sound hypocritical if I say that I hope to be reading his next column very soon.
