BBC links to other news sites

Website linking montage

Our users tell us that one of the things they value most about our service is our policy of linking openly to other websites.

We have now rolled out a way to link to local news sites in your city, county or region. It appears on all the BBC's local news indexes in England, Wales and Scotland.

This module offers six headline stories (three on our mobile site) from local news sites and a link through to the news index from the same site. The links are provided through a news aggregator called Moreover which also powers the external links that appear on our news story pages. Read the BBC links Q & A for a fuller explanation.

The headlines appear in order of most recently published so the latest news story should always be at the top of the module. The story could come from any of the news providers in your area. We are filtering the results to show no more than two from any one source at a time.

The news sites that appear in the module have been selected by the BBC to provide a service of headlines that is local, authoritative and comprehensive.

We have included the major news sites in your city, county or region. We have selected them on the basis that they produce a feed of news stories available through Moreover, that the stories are originated and not simply a rehash of agency stories, that they are general news sites, not campaigning or single issue sites, that the feed does not include adverts, and finally that they have a certain scale across your city, county or region.

The sites have been selected in consultation with your local BBC editorial team. So please let them know using the form below if you think we have missed any significant ones and we will consider them against our criteria.

We hope you find this service useful. If you have any comments or suggestions, or you want to complain about a headline then please use the form below.
