Nicola Stow has been a journalist for 12 years, covering news, features and investigations. She is an ex-employee of the News of the World - formerly Britain’s biggest selling newspaper – and for the last six years before its closure she was one of the paper’s most experienced crime feature writers.
In addition to producing a string of exclusive stories on serial killer Peter Tobin, she has also exposed drug gangs, paedophile rings and the exploits of Scotland’s most notorious prisoners. She also went undercover to expose a £300,000 HBOS junket at the height of the banking crisis in 2008.
She currently works as a freelance journalist and divides her time between Edinburgh and London.
