Andrew Horton

Andrew is Online News and Film Editor for Tearfund. This involves finding and writing up inspiring articles for the website, and capturing compelling stories on video.

He trained as a broadcast journalist and has worked in local and national newsrooms, as well as local TV. Claims to fame include performing stand-up comedy in front of 200 people and dabbling in viral social media (taking the first photo of London’s infamous anti-homeless spikes, which was then reposted over 100,000 times). He also wrote Easter (LIVE), the first real-time passion play told on Twitter.
