Andy Davies is a Home Affairs Correspondent for Channel 4 News covering Wales & the West of England.
In 2019 he was named TV Journalist of the Year by the Royal Television Society. This followed his reporting on the programme’s award-winning Cambridge Analytica investigation and ‘Out in the Cold’ homelessness series. His feature ‘Her Name was Lindy’ about a 32 year old rough sleeper who died in Cardiff was shortlisted for the Orwell Prize for Exposing Britain’s Social Evils.
Operating out of our Cardiff bureau, he has reported on some of the most high profile criminal cases in recent years (April Jones; Ian Watkins; Jo Yeates; Becky Watts) and previously broke several exclusives on the phone hacking scandal. He is the only journalist to have interviewed ex-police officer Bob Lambert about his hugely controversial double life in which he fathered a child while working undercover.
Before joining Channel 4 News, he was a reporter for BBC Panorama and BBC Northern Ireland.
