As the shock news of last week’s fatal shooting of fashion designer

Gianni Versace sped around the world last Tuesday, at Nexus Public

Relations, account manager Lindsay Sexton heard all about it from her

usual source of news - the office postman.



Unfortunately, the rather deaf postie told Sexton that one of the

Saatchi brothers had been shot, leaving her to speculate whether it was

Maurice or Charles who had been killed.



As one of Nexus’s biggest clients is Muller Dairy UK, who use the

brothers’ former agency Saatchi and Saatchi for their advertising,

Sexton was on the point of calling managing director Ken Wood to let him

know.



’Luckily I saw the Evening Standard’s front page before I picked up the

phone’, said a relieved Sexton. ’It’s the last time I believe anything

from that postman!’
