Speaking of her award, she said: “I was absolutely delighted to win this year’s Ernest Davies Award. Blue Badge fraud is a topic very close to my heart and I was shocked to discover just how rife this crime is when I spent the day with Portsmouth Council’s fraud team. Portsmouth does an amazing job trying to stop people abusing the scheme and I hope my article will make other authorities question if they could do more.”
