Andy Davies , Home Affairs Correspondent

Andy Davies is a Home Affairs Correspondent for Channel 4 News covering Wales & the West of England.

Operating out of our Cardiff bureau, he has covered a wide range of stories from the steel crisis in Port Talbot to pioneering reform programmes (#dadsinprison) in Britain’s largest prison HMP Parc. 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. He also exposed the extent to which some UK police forces were using ‘emergency response belts’ around detainees’ heads in custody.

Previously Andy reported for BBC Panorama where he won a Royal Television Society award for an investigation into corruption in horseracing. Before that he was a reporter for BBC Northern Ireland’s investigative strand Spotlight.
