Brian Flynn spent more than 20 years at The Sun. As Investigations Editor, he ran international operations that included exposing a gang selling orphans to British families as slaves, infiltrating Islamic State to thwart a terrorist bomb plot in the UK, jailing a Czech baby-selling gang targeting the UK and hunting down the world’s most wanted World War II Nazi fugitive in Hungary. As a news reporter, he covered wars in Kosovo, Iraq and Afghanistan, and just days after being appointed New York Correspondent was running towards the World Trade Center when it collapsed on 9/11. The following morning, he was the first British journalist back into Ground Zero after it had been evacuated. He has spoken out widely about the chilling effect on journalism of new legislation and the Leveson and Filkin reports, and left The Sun in 2016 to become a communications consultant.
