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.

Did you know councils are obliged to open their books to members of the public - allowing them to see every invoice, every payment and every receipt - for 20 days each year?

This isn't new, but it's not always well publicised. This year, the Government is making an effort to get word out, so that "residents and armchair auditors" have a chance to inspect spending in their local authority.

It's set up a search engine allowing people to check when their local authority is making its accounts available, which you can find here: http://local.direct.gov.uk/LDGRedirect/index.jsp?LGSL=1584&LGIL=8 .
