Yorkshire Post crime correspondent Claire Wilde has been promoted to a new group-wide data and investigations role.

Wilde, who has been working for the Post since March this year, has been promoted to JPIMedia’s news editor of data and investigations and will take up her new role at the start of 2019.

She tweeted: “As of next year, I’ll be JPIMedia’s News Editor of Data and Investigations. Still based at the Yorkshire Post building, they can’t get rid of me that easily.”

Prior to becoming crime correspondent, Wilde was City Hall reporter at the Bradford Telegraph & Argus for four years. From November 2017 to February 2018, she spent three months on secondment with the BBC’s shared data unit in Birmingham.

Johnston Press launched a central investigations team, involving journalists from across the company’s titles, in 2016. It was led by Aasma Day until she left the company to become the Huffington Post’s North of England correspondent earlier this year.
