Robbed at the Gaddafi's London Mansion

When I am old and grey and somebody asks me what was the most bizarre experience of my journalistic career, I will probably mention this day. I went out filming today with Rana Jawad, the BBC’s Tripoli correspondent who is in London at the moment. We decided to do a story about what is being […]

Camille Silvy: The Warhol of the 19th Century

London In The Snow

London In The Snow

It was lovely to finally see central London all decked out in white today. Although the UK has had some heavy snow in recent weeks, the heart of the capital has only got a light dusting until today. Here are a few shots I took while walking back through Hyde Park near sunset. They were […]
