Profile: Abigail Beaney


I have been a multimedia reporter with the Lancashire Telegraph since September 2020. Before that I was a reporter for Blog Preston and studied a degree in Journalism at the University of Central Lancashire. Although I have only been working in journalism for just over a year, I have managed to speak to some amazing people and cover stories from all across the county. I have a keen interest in politics, human interest and business news and like to keep up to date with the latest entertainment gossip. Contact me with any news relating to Blackburn, Darwen, Hyndburn, Pendle, Burnley or Ribble Valley.
