The Press Gazette’s Journalism Matters: Excellence in Reporting Coronavirus series highlights those who have produced outstanding comment and opinion pieces during the pandemic so far.

Featured in the April issue of FIRE, the white paper is the first in a series of comments calling for resetting the approach of emergency services.
