SCOOPERSTARS; MIRROR WINS 3 TOP PRESS AWARDS.
WE scooped three top prizes in the prestigious British Press Awards last night.
News reporter Stephen Moyes won Scoop of the Year for his world exclusive on Kate Moss allegedly taking cocaine at a recording studio.
The judges praised our man for breaking the story. They said: "Amid rumours of Kate Moss's alleged drug-taking it was only through the cultivation of contacts and with a level of ingenuity and nerve that this story finally came to fruition."
Chief sports writer Oliver Holt won Sports Journalist of the Year for the second time running.
The judges said his "in-depth reports, strong opinions and an unflinching attitude to the uglier face of sport has given Oliver Holt a real voice of authority".
And the Mirror proved it is top dog for hard news stories. We were awarded News Team of the Year at the newspaper industry's Oscars for our coverage of the suicide bombings which hit London on July 7 last year.
The judges said our stories "highlighted the human tragedy of the day".
We are proud to be number one when it comes to breaking exclusives, covering hard news and giving you the best in-depth sports coverage.
