Manchester Council Crackdown on Skateboarder’s on Cenotaph

I produced a print news feature surrounding the controversy of skateboarders damaging Manchester’s newly restored cenotaph in October 2014.

The feature is designed for publication for the Manchester Evening News.

This piece of work won the ‘Best Print Journalism’ award at the University of Salford Journalism Awards 2015, as judged by Daily Express North West correspondent Chris Riches.

Print News Day Articles

During my news days in the print journalism module at Salford University in December 2014, we had to source and write news stories in groups which were published in the student newspaper.

I wrote a lead story about a Salford cab driver calling for Islamic State victim Alan Henning to have his own street named after him in Eccles, and a story about the same cab driver and his taxi company donating over 100 advent calendars to Salford Central Foodbank.

You can read the stories here.

The following week, I wrote the lead story on Nick Clegg’s plans for the HS2 scheme in the North West, featuring an exclusive interview with the former Deputy Prime Minister and the UK’s first homeless store opening in Manchester.
