Lisa joined Sky News as a Midlands correspondent in 2005. She has reported on a wide range of high profile stories; from England’s riots in summer 2011 to the hunt for fugitive Raoul Moat in Rothbury. Lisa spent a week in the North East reporting every twist and turn of the police search for Moat and secured an exclusive half hour interview with his brother- who watched his death live on television.
Lisa has also covered the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, the summer floods of 2007, Britain’s big freeze in 2010, the MPs expenses scandal and the impact of the recession on the region and the changing face of its industry- following the collapse of MG Rover, the closure of Peugeot in Coventry and the demise of van maker LDV in Birmingham.
Lisa graduated from Nottingham Trent University in 2001 with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. She began her reporting career in radio, before moving to ITV Central in Birmingham as a producer, reporter and presenter.
Lisa grew up in the tiny village of Ilam, in the Peak District, and went to secondary school in nearby Ashbourne, Derbyshire. In her spare time she enjoys travelling, swimming, eating out, and has an interest in the role of women in history, in particular the Tudor period!
