I recently finished as a trainee at ITV Meridian in Southampton to start a job as a 'newsroom journalist' on the Calendar news programme on ITV Yorkshire in Leeds. It means I'm back in Yorkshire and living in my favourite city in Britain, Sheffield.
I had a great nine months at Meridian where I worked with some true professionals. I learnt how to set up stories for TV news, produce news bulletins and report for TV. The story above, about warnings not to swim in rivers, is the last I covered for Meridian. I was strolling along the Thames near Henley seeing if I could find some people swimming in the river and luckily for me, I came across two eccentric characters!
