The Sunday Post’s Marion Scott picked up the Campaign of the Year award at last night’s Scottish Press Awards.

Marion was honoured for her efforts over many years in reporting the stories of women who have suffered as a result of mesh implants and campaigned against their use.

Marion said: “Incredibly proud to have been awarded campaigning journalist of the year for the mesh scandal.

“Giving these amazing women a voice has been an honour.

“Despite the dreadful injuries they suffered they fight on to protect other women from the same fate – that is truly inspirational.”

Marion was also named runner-up in The Nicola Barry Award, established by Women in Journalism Scotland.

Sunday Post columnist Mandy Rhodes was runner-up in the Columnist of the Year category.
