Sites qualify to run Local Democracy Reporting Service material

ldrs logo 200px We’re pleased to report that our sites have met qualifying criteria enabling us to run stories reported by the BBC’s Local Democracy Reporting Service (LDRS).

LDRS journalists are funded by the BBC and employed by regional news organisations to cover local authorities and other public service organisations.

Stories written by the democracy reporters are shared with partners – nationally more than 850 media titles and outlets have signed up to be part of the Local News Partnerships scheme.

When we do run LDRS stories in the future, they will be clearly labelled.

There’s more information about the LDRS and Local News Partnerships from this link.
