Political Correspondent Carole Walker leaves the BBC

News correspondent Carole Walker will leave the BBC today after a 37-year career with the corporation.

Her colleague, Simon McCoy, tweeted: “We shall miss you. One of the best in the business.”

Martha Kearn added: “Sad to see that it is the last day at BBC for lovely and clever @carolewalkercw after 37 years! Best of luck x”

Carole is in Downing Street this afternoon reporting on the triggering of article 50 by the Prime Minister on Wednesday.
