My second entry is a feature on the growing epidemic of knife crime in Cardiff that highlights the extent of the problem through the lens of those whose lives have been utterly devastated by these crimes. This piece gave them the opportunity to tell their story, while also emphasising the extent of the problem. This was compiled over the course of several weeks and required extensive research to track down relevant people affected - from victims to families, to bystanders. This piece has been the cornerstone of my reporting of knife crime in the city and has allowed me to build relationships with those impacted and widen my reach. This piece was used as a special report in the South Wales Echo and was featured in HoldTheFrontPage. It was viewed online 10,607 times. My final entry is an interview with a man whose father took his own life as a result of the UK’s euthanasia laws. This story came about after I discovered a group protesting to change the law. Through researching some supporters I discovered Gareth Ward’s story about his father Norman. Norman took his own life after a devastating cancer diagnosis. Gareth is calling for laws around euthanasia to be changed. This article demonstrates how a wider national news story can often be illustrated through individual lived experiences. Compiling this article required an emotional interview with Gareth and research into current euthanasia laws as well as the campaign to change the law. It was a timely piece as a woman in the UK had been arrested that week for helping a parent to end their own life. This was published in the South Wales Echo as well as on WalesOnline where it was read 11,218 times. I have chosen to submit these entries because I feel they show I am a versatile reporter and are strong examples of the integral part regional journalism plays in Britain’s media landscape.
