[Wikipedia: Davies began his career with the Birmingham Post and Mail, and joined Mirror Group Newspapers in 1961 as a foreign correspondent and investigative reporter. He served as foreign editor of the Daily Mirror for 14 years[1] until he was sacked by Maxwell in 1991[2] at the age of 52.[3]

Davies later went on to publish stories of working with Maxwell,[4] as well as books about the British Royal Family and Northern Ireland.

Davies was first in the mass media to identify the victim of the 2007 royal blackmail plot, despite a court order preventing naming in the UK.[5][6]

He wrote a book on Maxwell entitled Death of a Tycoon: An Insider’s Account of the Rise and Fall of Robert Maxwell.]
