Sky Information wins BAFTA award for reporting of Hong Kong protests | Global Information

Sky News has won the BAFTA TV award for news coverage for its reporting of last year’s violent protests in Hong Kong.

Correspondents Alex Crawford, Tom Cheshire and Siobhan Robbins were on the front line as pro-democracy demonstrators clashed with officers on the streets of the city.

As well as covering the violent scenes and talking to the protesters, Sky News also spoke to the wives of riot police who were scared for their children, their husbands and themselves.
