Victoria arrived in London after growing up in Belgium and the Netherlands.

She "crossed the newsroom" to work in TV after five years as a reporter and news reader at BBC London 94.9fm.

Since then she's covered a range of stories from the shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes to youth crime in the capital, as well as a stint at the Politics Show.

She says: "The best bit of the job is getting to report different stories every day, and interviewing everyone from people in the pub to leading politicians.

"It's a privilege to get access to parts of the capital that few people ever get to see - like the top of Big Ben or the red carpet in Leicester Square."

When she's not at work Victoria can be found wandering around London's markets or occasionally in her local pub near Tower Bridge - one of the best in the capital!

She enjoys travelling as often as days off will allow, and hopes one day to master yoga and salsa dancing (though not at the same time!).
