From Bogus Bomb Detectors to Jimmy Savile - life as an investigative journalist Meirion Jones helped uncover the Bogus Bomb Detectors and Vulture Funds scandals. He won the Daniel Pearl Award for his investigation of Trafigura's toxic dumping, and Scoop of the Year for Jimmy Savile. He now runs investigations at the Bureau of Investigative Journalism - which has revealed Deliveroo's poverty wages, beef companies role in deforesting the Amazon, how the Met Police let an alleged rapist carry on serving and how poor countries are missing out on Covid vaccines. You probably haven't heard of the Bureau but you've probably seen its stories which so far this year have led BBC and ITV news, been a New York Times splash and appeared in almost every paper (national and local) in the UK and in media outlets in 90 countries around the world.
