Comment (by bradleyt):

 It seems there are a few possible solutions here:

  - 301 redirect
  - 302 redirect
  - Return the standard 404 page
  - Return a static page explaining why the new page has been removed and
 why, and linking to the appropriate replacement pages (suggested by
 @joostdevalk on Skype).

 It seems there is a risk that nothing is done whilst these options are
 considered (and written/ coded in the case of the last suggestion), which
 would not be a good outcome given the seriousness of this ticket.

 @jonoaldersonwp compared with doing nothing, would a 302 not be a
 reasonable short-term compromise compared with the current blank-page/ 404
