COUNTY: The Bridport and Lyme Regis News website has received a makeover.

If you head online to you will see we have made a few changes to the site.

The website now has a modern, fresh layout.

The idea is to provide an improved reader experience, focussing on what matters to you most trusted, up-to-the-minute local content.

We have introduced a new sports section and placed greater emphasis on our news stories, displaying far more stories and pictures than before.

Site navigation has improved too, providing quick links to important categories such as jobs, what’s on, announcements and all the latest Broadchurch 2 news.

Visitors can scroll down the page to discover content from a variety of sections and check out our new ‘Trending across the UK’ section that showcases viral content from our sister websites up and down the country, keeping you abreast of content that’s being shared among our readers.

Our article pages have also been given a makeover with a cleaner look and more space to read.

We hope you enjoy your new-look Bridport and Lyme Regis News site and stay tuned for further improvements in the coming months.

Group editor Toby Granville said: “The amount of readers visiting is continuing to soar – and now we have launched a fantastic new look website to make it even easier to find all your favourite content quicker.

“It’s fresh, slick and modern and now means you can get all the best local news, sport and information in style.”

Remember there is the new mobile site as well, making browsing for the news on your smart phone even easier.
