I wrote for York Mix, first as an intern and then freelance journalist, from April 2015 to August 2017. I first wrote about a potential cat cafe opening in the city, and since then I have written a number of stories, of which several have been picked up by national and international news outlets.

Video: York man captures film of terror attack in Tunisia; barricades himself in hotel room

I obtained video footage and managed to speak to a local resident about a serious incident taking place in the beach resort of Sousse. The story was widely picked up by other national media outlets like the Daily Mail and Daily Mirror.

Anger at anti-homeless bars installed on York benches

I wrote about bars which had been attached to benches in the city centre. The story prompted one of the city’s largest petitions in its history and led to a wave of protests against the council. Again, this was picked by local news outlets including the BBC.

York’s first cat cafe planned – to let you dine alongside furry friends

I wrote a story about a cat cafe opening in the city. It was widely shared on social media, and for a long time was the site’s most-shared story ever. It was also picked up by other local news outlets and even prompted a response from a local cat sanctuary.
