A regional publisher has continued the roll-out of its new-look websites branded in line with its newspapers.
Local World launched the first seven new sites last month with URLs that correspond to their print companions.
The sites are designed to have a more tabloid appearance with an uncluttered style and Local World plans that much of the content on them will eventually be user-generated.
An internal announcement about the sites said: “The new websites have a different look, with an uncluttered style that leads straight to the local stories that matter.
“They are more ‘tabloid’ in feel, meeting the demand for easy to read, visual and high impact content with a greater emphasis on local people.
“As they develop they will also have a greater range of news content which will be more fluid and dynamic than before, with updates throughout the day.
“While print and digital brands are being aligned, their content will become far more starkly differentiated. In particular, the digital platforms will include a far wider range of content sources, especially user generated material.
The new-look sites include those of the Torquay Herald Express, Mid Devon Gazette, Llanelli Star, Carmarthen Journal, Lichfield Mercury, Sutton Coldfield Observer, Walsall Advertiser, Tamworth Herald and Plymouth’s The Herald.
The full roll-out of more than 80 Local World sites due to be complete by the summer.
