Andrew worked his way through almost every job in the broadcasting industry. From work experience at newspapers in London, to his first job as a producer at ITV Birmingham, before joining the BBC as a Video Journalist in 2006.
His career includes more than a decade spent at the coal-face of one of the world’s biggest broadcasters. He reported live on international court cases as a foreign correspondent, covering the trials of Shrien Dewani and Oscar Pistorius from South Africa in 2014, and the terrorist attack in Nice, France and Munich in Germany in 2016.
Closer to home, he worked as a national network journalist across every major BBC programme, broadcasting on The BBC’s flagship Radio 4 ‘Today’ programme, BBC Radio 5Live, BBC Breakfast, The One, Six and Ten o’clock news, The BBC News Channel, Newsnight and every BBC Digital platform.
He also worked as a TV presenter for BBC Points West, BBC World News and the BBC News Channel.
Andrew’s expertise includes TV producing, scripting, filming and editing, as well as presenting and ‘live’ breaking-news situations. An expert interviewer, his context and analysis regularly appeared on BBC news across radio, TV and online.
Early in 2021, Bristol found itself the scene of major public disorder. Later known as the ‘Bristol Riots,’ Andrew was deployed to the scene to broadcast as a live lead story into the BBC Ten o’clock news, Radio 4 news bulletins and provide digital stills and copy – and had just 90 minutes to hit multiple broadcasting deadlines.

During the Coronavirus pandemic, a curious trend emerged in the data: some areas of the country were experiencing strangely low Covid levels. Andrew’s dogged journalism helped expose a huge problem with one of the testing facilities in Wolverhampton – and led to a scandal that rocked public faith in the entire testing programme.
