Top honours for four journalists.

FOUR Evening Telegraph editorial staff scooped honours at last night's BT awards ceremony.

Both Barbara Argument and Alison McConkey were highly commended in the Feature Writer of the Year category.

Barbara's portfolio included her reporting and campaigning on behalf of Adam Redhead, the Coventry boy who suffers from autism and for whom readers raised more than pounds 60,000.

Alison's articles included an in-depth report on residents who saved Starley Road in Coventry and the plight of grandparents who bring up their grandchildren after the loss of their own children.

Reporter Samantha Brankin was highly commended in the News Journalist of the Year category for a series of stories including initial revelations of a crisis in Coventry's social services.

And trainee reporter Antony Hopker was highly commended in the Newcomer of the Year section for a portfolio of stories which included an expose of an electrical contractor who had left a trail of angry customers.
