One of our reporters at ITV News West Country has been recognised at the Royal Television Society awards for Bristol and the West of England.

Wiltshire reporter Robert Murphy has won the title of Best Reporter for 2014/2015 in recognition of his "strong investigative and reactive journalism".

in the past year he has reported on the investigations into the deaths of Sian O'Callaghan and Becky Godden, the waste fire at Averies Recycling in Swindon and the story of Anne the elephant who has a new home at Longleat after being abused.

Outside Wiltshire he has also been to South Africa on the case of Bristol businessman Shrien Dewani and has covered the Vincent Tabak investigation. He has also taken on the role of Political Reporter and will be playing a key role in the coming elections.

Although the award is for the past year, Rob has been a member of the team since 2000, making a vital contribution to our output. He includes travelling to the Bahamas to interview ss Great Britain saviour Sir Jack Hayward among his highlights.

Whether donning his Speedos to race Sir Duncan Goodhew back in 2008 is also a highlight will remain to be seen.

Young people have dropped into the ITV News West Country studios to find out about working in the media and to see what goes on behind the scenes in a busy newsroom.
