Congratulations to Sabrina Miller, winner of the Journalists’ Charity ‘Young Journalist of the Year’ Award and the prestigious London Press Club Awards 2023.
Aged 23, and only a few months into her first national newspaper job at the Mail on Sunday, Sabrina exposed a plot by over 100 extremist animal rights protestors to sabotage the world famous Grand National by storming onto the course and forming a human barrier. Her bravery in working undercover averted a disaster with police arresting 117 people. Sabrina has written a number of other exclusives.
