Delighted to see this story running in outlets across Europe this morning. @lauramarg, @CelineSchoen and I spent weeks reading through meeting records and speaking with experts involved in the response to find out what went wrong in Europe https://t.co/akj8Ga4Gwg

How, in under 60 days, did Europe go from a handful of cases to being the epicentre of the outbreak? This is the inside story of the complacency, confusion and a lack of coordination that plunged the continent into crisis https://t.co/VLgJbHj0Ct

As #Deliveroo prepares a multibillion-pound stock market flotation that could net its chief executive as much as £500m, our investigation finds many riders are paid less than the minimum wage. Sometimes earnings drop as low as £2 an hour #TakenForARide https://t.co/okEL6LCOkm https://t.co/dxSe96800S

One year ago, our world changed. The @WHO declared the rapidly-spreading coronavirus outbreak was officially a pandemic. Throughout the crisis, our reporters have dug into the systematic issues undermining the battle against the virus. Twelve months on, what have we found?

One of the first things you should try when you get a redacted document through FOI - you’ll be surprised how often it works https://t.co/NtzDX85p3c

Watch @paraicobrien's @Channel4News' report on how poorly redacted documents show the Home Office knew it would be a "risk" to force asylum seekers to live in dormitories at military barracks. Produced in collaboration with reporting from @ben_stockton and I for @TBIJ https://t.co/nRYKbTYi8X

The Home Office is accused of treating asylum seekers dangerously - crammed into disused military barracks where dozens have caught Covid. This programme with @TBIJ has obtained documents which show the gov knew the health risks. @paraicobrien reports. https://t.co/9uWXDvu7J8

Almost 200 asylum seekers housed at Napier barracks got Covid - @TBIJ’s report with @Channel4News and @guardian shows the Home Office knew the risk of using dorms but pressed ahead with plans regardless. Credit to @chantaladasilva for a great scoop https://t.co/rcrAPPprfF

Honoured that @twrahul @ben_stockton and I’s story on pharma companies giving TVs and other incentives to quack doctors to prescribe more antibiotics - creating more superbugs - is featured in this @ProjectCensored book.

This piece highlighted by our algorithm back in July from @danielboffey @CelineSchoen @ben_stockton @lauramarg deals with problems of the early pandemic, but came right before a historic EU summit. An article worth remembering at the end of the year https://t.co/lVhjR79mvw
