THE Sen­tinel and its jour­nal­ists won three awards and were highly com­mended twice in the O2 North West Me­dia Awards.

Our film-maker, Mar­tin Brough, won for Vis­ual Me­dia, and live re­porter Tom Bur­nett won in the Emerg­ing Ta­lent cat­e­gory.

Chief pho­tog­ra­pher Steve Bould was highly com­mended, while head of events and spe­cial pub­li­ca­tions Jenny Am­phlett, and graphic de­signer Andy Stod­dard, were also highly com­mended in the Team of the Year cat­e­gory.

The Sen­tinel also won the award for the Most Mem­o­rable story for our cov­er­age of the Ryan Evans tragedy at West­port Lake and sub­se­quent Swim­safer cam­paign – in con­junc­tion with Stoke-on-trent City Coun­cil – which saw more than 1,000 chil­dren re­ceive wa­ter train­ing cour­ses and swim­ming lessons.

Ryan’s dad Glynn sur­prised The Sen­tinel team by mak­ing the trip to Ch­ester to present this award.

Sen­tinel Ed­i­tor Mar­tin Tideswell said: “Record­ing lo­cal life and cham­pi­oning our patch is a re­spon­si­bil­ity our jour­nal­ists take very se­ri­ously, and it is grat­i­fy­ing to be recog­nised for the work we do 24/7 at the largest awards event of its kind in the UK.

“I am ex­tremely proud of our team.”
