Shooting down in Beirut’s ground zero this morning... The epicentre of the explosion is still a mangled mess of smashed concrete, twisted metal and stinky rotting grain from the contents of the silo.

Why do people shoot un-graded 4K Raw for a news story when they are not editing the footage? 😫 #lookslikeshit #keepitsimplestupid (it’s not really a question, just wanted a moan) lol

Walking around there are still small and big piles of glass and debris all around Beirut uncleared from the Explosion that ripped apart the city on the 4th August... It’s is going to take so long to for this city to heal the physical scars from that day. https://t.co/kNvw3U5dbG

Frustrated by the lack of international attention on Afghanistan, I decided we should record the deaths of every civilian over one month last August. I had no idea it would have such an impact. It's success was down to the great team from across the BBC. https://t.co/AaA3jb0H2R

2 years ago today we were in Yemen covering stories from the conflict. What a wonderful country with the most tragic of recent past. We had the privilege of being able to travel the length of the country from top to bottom and experience this beautiful place for nearly three weeks.
