He said: “I have loved working at the Sentinel and Burton Mail. As someone who grew up in Staffordshire, I know how important news is to people living in towns like Stafford and Burton upon Trent.

“However, GB News is a fantastic new opportunity to tell the stories that matter to real, ordinary people from a wide range of diverse communities across the country and I’m looking forward to joining the team and getting started.”
