Lewis Gillingwater

Reporter - Westminster/Holyrood

Lewis is a parliamentary reporter at Newsdirect Scotland covering developments from Westminster and Holyrood committees and news from the UK and Scottish Governments.

Following obtaining an undergraduate degree in Politics and German from the University of Dundee, Lewis worked for the Scottish Social Services Council for 2 years providing working on casework in their registration department. He then left to pursue a postgraduate degree in Political Communications at the University of Glasgow in 2020 and worked in marketing and political research before joining Newsdirect in August 2021.

Outside of work, Lewis spends his time fighting a never-ending battle to get through his list of books to be read, movies to be seen and podcasts to be listened to.
