A feather in Bella's cap

Jun
29

MA student Isabella Fish has something to crow about this morning - a byline on page 3 of the Daily Mail.

Bella is currently on work experience at the newspaper after winning a scholarship through the Centre for Journalism. And she couldn't have got off to a better start.

Her story about an adopted rook with "separation issues" leads page 3 today.

We'll have a flutter on it being the first of many stories bearing her name in national newspapers.
