Welcome to your new-look website.

With a modern, fresh layout, the home page has been redesigned to provide an improved reader experience, focussing on what matters to you most – trusted, up-to-the-minute local content.

We’ve introduced a new sports section and placed greater emphasis on our news stories, displaying far more stories and pictures than before. Site navigation has improved too, providing quick links to important categories such as jobs, what’s on and announcements.

Scroll down the page to discover content from a variety of sections and check out our new ‘Trending across the UK’ section that showcases viral content from our sister websites up and down the country, keeping you abreast of content that’s being shared among our readers.

Our article pages too have been given a makeover with a cleaner look and more space to read.

We hope you enjoy your new-look site and stay tuned for further improvements in the coming months.

Does it make linking URLs in the comments section any better?

Your lucky to be able to post URL's at all. Most comment pages/blogs etc filter out anything that even resembles a URL or email address, this includes a profanity filter. The WO are quite lenient to allow us the freedom we have, they don't even pre moderate the comments.

New website but same old WO, will it improve the quality of reporting which has been below parr recently?

Oh and by the way WO, that bit on the 'home' page where you take a couple of comments that people have left on some article or other the current ones are two months old so whats the point of that exactly? They use to change regularly but not anymore, not even for when you launch your new look website!

What can www. do that m. cannot?

For the last week I've been using the mobile site on my desktop because it is less cluttered and uses a responsive, rather than a fixed-width, design.

I personally would have replaced the desktop site with the mobile site. As well as being cleaner, there wouldn't be a need to manage two websites.
