2014 was a great year for OpenWorld News, and it was all topped off with a nomination at the British Journalism Awards for Investigation of the Year. Thanks to all those who supported our journalism.
Here’s a reminder of ten things we learned this year thanks to OpenWorld News
1. Supermarkets selling unlabelled Halal meat
Supermarkets and restaurants were selling Halal-slaughtered meat – but with no labelling, customers were completely unaware.
2. Hospitals incinerating unborn babies as waste
Our investigation caused the NHS to ban the incineration of all foetal remains from miscarriages and abortions.
Shortlisted at the British Journalism Awards for Investigation of the Year.
3. Britain’s weapons sales to Russia
As the Government condemned the Kremlin for the annexation of Crimea, we revealed the UK was supplying £86m of arms to Russia.
4. The true scale of child sexual exploitation
For the first time, our investigation revealed how many children all over England are at risk of sexual exploitation and grooming gangs.
