I am an experienced online journalist and political editor working for Trinity Mirror papers in the West Midlands and the North East, based in the Parliamentary Press Gallery at Westminster.

I understand how government, Parliament and political parties work. I am equally at home digging out stories from data, social media or interviews as I am covering major set-piece events or explaining how things work to readers.

I produce content which is shareable and promote my work on social media.

My experience with content management systems and knowledge of HTML allows me to include charts, embedded content from third parties and formatting in my work, to create content which encourages interaction and keeps readers on the page.

Six councils including the Black Country borough of Sandwell have won a High Court challenge over the Government's decision to scrap Building Schools for the Future projects in their areas.

Mr Justice Holman ordered Education Secretary Michael Gove to reconsider the decision "with an open mind", but made a point of saying the final decision still rested with Mr Gove.

Some media coverage is highlighting the judge's comment that Mr Gove's failure to consult councils before announcing the cancellation decision last year was "so unfair as to amount to an abuse of power". However, this comment applies to all the councils except for Sandwell.

Here are some key extracts from the judgment, and at the bottom is a link to the full document:
