On Friday 7th of April I was working a normal london based news shift for ITV National News when An Uzbeki migrant decided to hijack a lorry and plough through a pedestrian street in the centre of Stockholm killing 4 people. I walked into the newsroom a short while after it happened having been called to go and cover the story
The Cross channel ferry Herald of Free Enterprise capsized minutes after leaving the Belgian port of Zeebrugge on the 6th March 1987. The tragic events that night resulted in 193 passengers and crew losing their lives in what was the biggest peacetime maritime disaster since the Titanic. Commemorations were held this weekend in both the ports of Zeebrugge and its intended destination of Dover and I was tasked by ITV News to be their shoot edit to cover both events over two days.
