Blog: Olly WehringA new born just-drinks, a new born Brook Carter

It gives me tremendous pleasure to announce a new addition to the just-drinks family... of sorts.

This morning, at 0800 our esteemed former editor - and now group news editor - Chris Brook Carter, and his wife, Abby, welcomed baby Jack into the world.

At 8lb 15oz, Jack is probably set to follow his father on the rugby field, although if someone can make a laptop small enough, there's nothing to say he couldn't help out on this esteemed organ some time soon.

Congratulations to you both, Abby & Chris, from the just-drinks team.
