My tiny team at L&M have been turning round some really cracking stories and newspapers recently.
I have been particularly pleased with a recent story on the back of a 20-year-old murder – where the surviving family members spoke out about the crime still being as fresh for them as it was back then.
Really heartrending stuff and a credit to the reporter, who acting on a brief, went the extra mile to turn the whole thing round while I was away in the US. Great to return and read it.
It has been a busy week since I got back, with lots of things going on behind the scenes, topped by freezing weather causing chaos on the roads as the snow and sleet hit – made worse by high winds. I’ve been out of the newsroom a lot
But we still managed to get the Guardian out #phew
