Laura Pitel

I am a British journalist based in Turkey, where I have lived since 2015. I cover Turkey for The Financial Times and other UK news outlets.

Prior to moving here, I was on staff at The Times (of London) for six years, most recently as Westminster correspondent. 

I have extensive experience in TV, Radio and on podcasts, appearing on the BBC, ITV, Sky News and a host of others.
