City council reporter Rory Reynolds is nominated in the Young Journalist of the Year category for a range of impressive exclusives

Meanwhile, our continuing and extensive coverage of the twists and turns of Edinburgh’s tram project, ensuring that our readers are the first to know every major development, has seen us named in the Journalist Team of the Year category.

The trams also helped to earn us a Front Page of the Year nomination. When the shock decision was taken to stop the tram line at Haymarket we memorably dressed up the main party leaders as clowns under the headline “What a Joke”.
