Here comes a judge…British Journalism Awards

Fresh back from British Journalism Awards. Delighted to present Gareth Browne from The Times with ‘New Journalist of the Year’ award for his coverage of ISIS. Grenfell Fire was the big domestic story and the tiny Inside Housing team rightly picked up ‘News organisation of the year’ beating their much larger Fleet Street rivals. IH reported extensively on fire safety in Tower Blocks including Grenfell before the fire. It was a pleasure to see so much good reporting and some old friends including Geoff Lean who as environment correspondent of The Observer successfully campaigned to have lead taken out of petrol.
