They're delighted...A round-up of press release joy in the world of British journalism this week

Eagle-eyed Press Gazette readers will note that the phrase "I'm delighted" almost never appears on this site.

That's because it is on our banned list of words and phrases, see Style Guide.

But it's a sunny afternoon, so I'm going to share some of the sheer joy that is around in the world of journalism this week as evidenced by some of the press releases we have received.

Here's a digest of delight:
