I am senior correspondent for The Sunday Times, previously at the Telegraph, the London Evening Standard, and the BBC’s Today programme. I’m a winner or nominee of various awards, including the Paul Foot Award, the Orwell Prize, Amnesty International Media Awards, British Journalism Awards and Foreign Correspondent of the Year and Journalist of the Year at the British Press Awards (winner 2008, nominee 2015).
