Last night, Lyra Mckee, a brilliant young investigative journalist, was shot and killed.
I chatted with Lyra on Twitter – she even gave me some help when I was stuck on a story. And I was far from the only one. Tributes have been pouring in.
The best tributes though come in the shape of Lyra’s own words. In 2017, she gave a very powerful talk at TedXStormont. You may also want to read the letter Lyra wrote to her 14-year-old self.
A GoFundMe has been setup to support Lyra’s family and her legacy.
My first book "Not Buying It", looking at post-truth in media and politics, is being published by Unbound
