My stories

I write thousands of words every day for BBC News, not to mention emails, Twitter, Facebook and other written media.

The vast majority of what I write is news published without a by-line – the every day stories of life in a small island.

But occasionally I have the opportunity to work on a story that sticks, a story that I have spent time researching and includes my name at the top.

Here is a list of some of my favourites:

This list doesn’t include the dozens of live election night pages I’ve worked on, the wider feature stories and the news articles on big breaking stories.

Working in Journalism can be both rewarding, frustrating and amazing all at the same time.
