EXAMINER writer Tony Hetherington has won a top award.
The financial journalist, who writes each Wednesday in the newspaper, has been named as Consumer Journalist of the Year in the Association of British Insurers awards.
Mr Hetherington (pictured below), who has been a journalist since 1982, turned to the media after starting his career working for the Inland Revenue.
He said: “I still enjoy the work. I have a lot of contact with readers and they bring up the issues that I take on, good and bad.”
