BBC News has appointed Nikki Fox to the first-time role of disability correspondent.

Fox has made several disability documentaries for BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio 5 live. She has reported on disability issues for BBC One's The One Show and appears regularly on Richard Bacon's 'Moan-In' features on 5 live.

Based at MediaCity UK in Salford, Fox will begin her role in June, working in a team of three broadcast journalists reporting on disability issues. She will be supported by producer Ruth Clegg.

Fran Unsworth, deputy director at BBC News, said of the appointment: "The role of disability correspondent is the first of a number of positions to be created within our new disability news team as we continue to bolster our specialist reporting.”

Fox can be found tweeting @FoxNikkiFox.
