The Judges said: "This was an excellent programme in every respect, with high production values, strong imagery, creative use of archive, touching interviews and persistant questioning of those with responsibility".

2019 - Best Factual
O2 Media Awards - Yorkshire

This award was for the most ambitious live OB in which 3 BBC regions came together for a special Outside Broadcast from the National Railway Museum in York. At its heart a subject that was a real talking point across the north -  Rail services. It was a complicated live programme on BBC One , with live contributions from other locations and VT inserts played in from a 2nd gallery in Salford.  I was one of the three presenters  and did the holding-to-account interviewing.

2018 - Presenter of the Year
Royal Television Society - NE & The Border

This was the first year this award was given in the name of Mike Neville, the legendary North East broadcaster. So this was a huge honour.

The Judges said: "Chris is a versatile journalist who has a great manner on-screen. He gives time to his stories and is at ease in front of the camera, whether the subject-matter is challenging or more light-hearted.

2018 - Best Factual
Royal Television Society - National Awards
For: Inside Out - Operation Sanctuary
My Role: Reporter/Presenter

"The judges were blown away by the originality and the journalism behind this story, which took two years to make. It was a quality production with the technical elements skillfully directed. The small team had clearly invested heavily in this hard-to-tell story and overcame legal hurdles to ensure it was broadcast… a standout piece of journalism that raises important moral questions about the secret world of paid informers."
