The Northern Echo: Our Transporter Bridge through Lenses

Group Editor Karl Holbrook said: “We are proud to serve the individual communities that make up this amazingly diverse patch.

“That’s why from today we are splitting up our team to better serve our key areas from Darlington and Teesside to County Durham and North Yorkshire.

“These key areas will have their own team of dedicated journalists reporting on the issues that matter most to people on the ground.

“Each new team will curate a bespoke section of our website dedicated to these key areas and make sure their content is showcased better than ever to the audiences that want it.  

“It will be a work in progress and further changes will be announced in the coming weeks as we look to launch newsletters and other exciting developments built around our different communities and audiences.

“We are so excited about these changes and hope our readers support it by bookmarking the new sections of the website and by following the new Facebook pages.”
