ITN political editors bid farewell to Anne Lingley
The Channel 4 News team in Westminster and our ITN colleagues at ITV News in the Commons have for many years been dependent on a marvellous colleague, Anne Lingley.
She didn’t so much run the Commons office as our entire professional lives.
Yesterday we had a lunch of all the ITN political editors (ITV, IRN and Channel 4 News) who worked with her to mark her retirement and from top left going clockwise you can see who came along:
John Sergeant, Julian Haviland, Anne Lingley, Elinor Goodman, Michael Brunson, Glyn Mathias, Peter Murphy, Nick Robinson, Tom Bradby, Gary Gibbon.
There was a reception in the Commons too and after 37 years at ITN’s Commons office, the turnout was as overwhelming as the affection.
Anne, we’ll miss you horribly … but thank you with all our hearts for amazing wisdom, professionalism and friendship!
