PUBLIC SECTOR: Harrow calls in McConville as PR manager

Harrow Council PR head Kevin Wilson has drafted in Toni McConville as his first PR manager, a role created earlier this year. McConville joins as the borough finds itself fielding media questions about the apparent failure of its social services to prevent the death of 13-year-old Aliyah Ismail, who died at the beginning of October. In the short-term, McConville will deal with press interest in the story, while her long-term brief will be the day-to-day management of the seven-strong press and publications department. She joins from the London Borough of Hillingdon, where she was senior press officer.
