Mark Stone is a News Reporter at Sky News. He joined Sky as a producer in 2005 and switched to reporting in 2007.

He has covered a huge variety of stories with Sky ranging from the conflicts in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya to the abduction of Madeline McCann and the Jersey child abuse scandal.

Mark was among the first British journalists to embed with the British Army in Afghanistan’s Helmand Province in July 2006. He was the first reporter with an eyewitness report from inside the terminal of Glasgow Airport following the terrorist attack in June 2007. He covered the death of Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko in London — a man he met two weeks before he was poisoned.

Mark is one of just a handful of journalists to sit through almost every session of Britain’s Iraq Inquiry giving him an extensive knowledge of the war in Iraq and the decisions behind it.

In 2011 he reported extensively on the uprising and subsequent NATO intervention in Libya with analysis from London and on the ground in Tripoli.

Before joining Sky, Mark spent three years at ABC News (America). He was based in Iraq for a year between 2003 and 2004. He reported on the capture of Saddam Hussein, the insurgency that followed and was part of a small team who were awarded an EMMY for their coverage of the war.

He studied at the University of East Anglia, is married and lives in London.
