Rashida Josiah played an important role as runner, fixer and on- the- ground journalist for the BBC Panorama film on the Grenfell Fire. Rashida was called in at the last minute and suddenly found herself working on one of the most important and harrowing stories of a generation.

She proved her worth time and time again over the next four days. One moment Rashida was talking to families who’d lost everything in the fire, the next she was rushing back to the edit with filmed material. Working 16 hour shifts, nothing was too small for her attention and nothing daunted her.

She is intelligent, resourceful and hard working. Our programme, made in five days was a team effort, she was a very valuable part of our team.
