THE work of the Hartlepool Mail in highlighting the town’s unemployment is to be recognised in Parliament next week.

The Mail’s Tracy Walker has been shortlisted for the Regional Journalist of the Year category in the Avanta Press Awards for her coverage focusing on the town’s jobless situation, through our Work in Progress campaign.

She has been invited to an awards ceremony hosted by MP Nick de Bois, which will be held in The Terrace Pavilion in the House of Commons, on Thursday, May 3.

The awards aim to recognise journalists who excel in the fields of welfare reform, skills and unemployment.
