Online reporter Sam Blackledge said: “There’ll be a lot more video content and user-generated stuff – loads of blogs and comments, things that people can get involved in.

“It looks quite flash compared to our old site.

“It has been developed by the Guardian people in Manchester and we’ve been constantly liaising with them on how it looks.

“We have a good mix on the front page, some sports and news stories.

“The home page is more of an overview of what we’ve got if you delve in.

“From my point of view, that’s what the homepage should be about.”
