His first job in news was as a reporter for the Telegraph’s Peterborough diary column (and where he also assisted leader writer Boris Johnson). Tom joined The Daily Mirror as a reporter before graduating to Defence Correspondent. He then took on the Defence Editor role at The Sun, covering key military stories and joining forces on the front line, before being appointed Political Editor.
