THE AMP has a new committee member – heavyweight news veteran Tom Hendry, pictured.
Tom, 77, served as news editor and assistant editor on the Daily Mirror, was deputy news editor of the Sunday Express, and later news editor of the Mail on Sunday. He freelances to this day.
Tom is married to Sunday Mirror journo Jacqui Thake.
Over the years, Tom has masterminded coverage of countless major news stories – including the Hillsborough tragedy, the Zeebrugge ferry disaster, the Lockerbie air crash – and Sarah Ferguson’s toe-sucking shame.
He said: “Like every newspaper, the Mirror is going through hard times because of the coronavirus pandemic, but I hope to make an impact and help safeguard our members.” (Please go to About Us>The Committee.)
