 Brunt was first to report the arrest of Amy Winehouse, the resignation of [[sir_ian_blair|Sir Ian Blair]] as [[metropolitan_police|Metropolitan Police]] commissioner,​ and was the first to interview [[robert_murat|Robert Murat]], then suspected of involvement in the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

In 2010, Brunt reported live from Rothbury during the police hunt for gunman Raoul Moat. In October 2014, Brunt was the journalist involved in the unmasking of an individual who had posted abusive comments concerning the McCann investigation on social media.
