About Andrew Hirst
I’ve been a reporter since 2010 at newspapers in Lincolnshire and East Anglia. Before joining The Shetland Times, I was part of Archant’s Investigations Unit, reporting for titles across the group. When not at work, I’m usually reading books, listening to records or walking around the countryside.
