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.

The first session of the Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee's inquiry into the future of local and regional media is online, here:

Representatives of DC Thomson, Johnston Press, Guardian Media Group and my employer Trinity Mirror took part.

I'd like to put the video up here - it wouldn't be hard. However the Commons video website states that "live and archive video broadcasts . . . may not be directly linked to, reproduced, copied or downloaded without formal agreement from PARBUL (Parliamentary Broadcasting Unit Limited) or the Director of Parliamentary Broadcasting."

Perhaps as part of the new spirit of openness dominating the elections for a new Commons Speaker, this restriction could be lifted?
