Sunday Herald hack recognised in campaigning award

CONGRATULATIONS to the Sunday Herald’s Liam McDougall, who has finished as a runner-up in a competition recognising the best in UK campaigning and investigative journalism.

Set up by Private Eye magazine and The Guardian newspaper in honour of the late, legendary journalist, Paul Foot, this year’s Paul Foot Award went to David Harrison, for his “tireless and often perilous” investigation into sex trafficking in Eastern Europe, for The Sunday Telegraph.

But McDougall was one of six runners-up.
