When locators are absolutely useful

The Guardian again. Some months ag I complined about an absolute useless locator on its web. It was the following:

Maybe it's useful for people from Jokela, Tuusula (Finland), but I don't think the percentage of Guardian reader there would be very high.
In the other hand, this time happens just the opposite.
The new was that a private plane crashed on Kent. This was the locator:

Useful information on it:
1. Where in London crashed the plane
2. That it happened very near from the airport
3. That it fell very near from a hospital, that could cause a bigger disaster

Those are very good reasons to have locators on page.
