After three years at Sky Lewis returned to the BBC as Policy Editor for Newsnight where he also played an increasing role in the corporation’s election coverage. He has covered a wide range of subjects including the war in Ukraine and the resulting refugee crisis, building safety post-Grenfell and the schools exam crisis in the summer of 2020, for which he was nominated for the Orwell Prize.
