Allow me to make this small point

Here’s one for the subs.

An exclamation mark (best avoided in journalism, of course) is used as a full point, thus: He ran from London to Birmingham!

But if the sentence is a quote, some papers add a full point: “He ran from London to Birmingham!”.

Is the full point necessary in the latter example? Discuss.
