- Jim Greenhalf, T&A Reporter
Jim Greenhalf joined the T&A in 1977 looking for a way out. Instead he was thrown into the middle of some of the biggest news stories in the UK - the Ripper, Ray Honeyford, the Bradford City fire, the Rushdie book burning - winning awards along the way. Perhaps he found what he was after.
