Step over here once again, sir: Consultation into police stop and search powers

This was an In Focus news feature for Metro into a serious subject – the police’s use of stop and search powers.

The original copy was about twice the length needed so required a heavy rewrite. However, the reporter had a lot of good first-hand interviews and set the scene well, especially with the case study ‘Barry’. Careful line-by-line tweaking was needed to reduce the story to length.

You can read the story in a PDF format here.
