It was a night to remember for an East Anglian Daily Times and Ipswich Star journalist, who won big at a journalism awards ceremony.
Amy Gibbons, part of our east Suffolk team, beat fierce competition from two other young reporters to win the crown of ‘Top Scoop’ at the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ) event.
Her report on the price of school uniform in our region bagged her the award at the glittering event in Newport in Essex.
Speaking after the event, Miss Gibbons said: “It was such a lovely surprise even to be shortlisted for top scoop - let alone win the award.
“I was privileged to be considered alongside such brilliant journalists, who have produced some truly inspirational work covering a variety of crucial issues.
