From the early days of Fleet Street, to the 24-hour rolling news which we know today, press photographers capture and give life to the events in the world around us.

Last year London found itself at the epicentre for some of the most dramatic, colourful and character-filled events of 2013. Just the utterance of “Wimbledon” or “royal baby” sparks a kaleidoscope of images which flooded our national news outlets and entered public consciousness- never to be forgotten!41c1dd3758f06a21d8d067f87564c40f_f2174 87bcb1bc1ff789c2742e37dc8692e835_f2170 91ff4dc1e3499f7128e5380ff8a62111_f2173
