TWO Kentish Times Newspaper journalists have passed their senior exams.

Ed Riley, 26, and Jason Goodyer, 29, have worked on the Dartford and Swanley Times and Gravesend Reporter for almost three years and 18 months respectively.

Less than 50 per cent of trainee journalists across the country who took the NCE (National Certificate Examination) in the spring passed.

Both reporters who work for the series of four Archant owned newspapers also contribute to the Bexley Times and Bromley Times.

During their time at Archant they have broken a string of exclusive splashes, human interest stories and worked on campaigns.

Assistant editor (content) Michael Adkins added: "Ed and Jason have showed dedication and commitment since joining and have produced some great stories.

"They have a strong presence in the town and thoroughly deserve their pass in all four sections of the senior exams.
