None of our team are qualified journalists.
All of our bulletins produced are an impartial summery of local events that we have compiled & simplified from press releases sent to us (Local Councils, NHS CCGs, UK Government, Highways England, Police & Fire Service) & published stories from established local press. One bulletin is produced by The Havering Daily.
When using local press in our bulletins we always cite our source.
