Liam founded this site as Selby Online back in 2000. His first experience of local journalism was covering the Selby Floods in November 2000.

Time away working in the world of Local Government has given Liam a unique insight into how the organisations that shape the lives of those who govern us work, and what makes those in charge tick.

Now back at the site he created, now rebooted as TheSelebian, Liam combines his day to day editor duties with writing on local government matters in Selby.
