British Press Awards winners 2008

Congratulations to Tom Newton Dunn at The Sun for helping the paper pick up four gongs at this year’s British Press Awards, and also the chaps at The Guardian which was named Website of the Year.

All worthy winners in my view, and not just because I tipped them here last month, as well as praising the Financial Times which was named newspaper of the year.
