The St Helena report and the gap in media

Blinded governor makes light of attack injury

The diplomat who was blinded in one eye by a London mugger has taken up his duties as the new governor of Bermuda, just five weeks after the attack.

After being sworn in, George Fergusson said: “I am delighted to be here. I might have hoped to see Bermuda over the next few years with two eyes, but it’s looking pretty good with one.”

He said his major priorities – alongside a new government – are tackling gang violence and an economic crisis.

Mr Fergusson wore the traditional governor’s uniform, including ostrich-feather hat – now abandoned on St Helena.
