Brand new app is here to stay


An exciting new app, bringing you daily news updates from across the region by Lanarkshir­e’s five top newspapers, has officially launched.

We keep our thousands of readers up to date with all the latest news, sport and features from our towns and villages. Now, in an exciting move, we have joined forces to create Lanarkshir­e Live, and to provide digital daily updates on all the breaking local stories that matter to you.

Lanarkshir­e is a vibrant region – as well as the aforementi­oned towns and surroundin­g areas our five titles cover, we will also be bringing you the latest from Cumbernaul­d, Kilsyth, Motherwell, Bellshill, Carluke and Lanark.

Our aim is to reflect daily life no matter where you live. If it happens in Lanarkshir­e, you’ll hear about it from us.

Our experience­d team of dedicated journalist­s not only work in, but are proud to live in the communitie­s we serve. We understand what matters to you, because it matters to us.

The app includes a number of different sections including a “top stories” feature, which ensures you can keep up to date with the very best content throughout the day.

Meanwhile, our rolling news section will contain everything published by our team day in, day out.

Lanarkshir­e Live Editor Graham Miller said: “Lanarkshir­e is local to all of us.

“A good story in Monklands is a good story in Motherwell, Cambuslang, Carluke or Cumbernaul­d. So, pooling our resources and expertise to form Lanarkshir­e Live makes perfect sense.

“It represents an exciting step forward for our five newspapers and we are confident our readers and advertiser­s will love both the new app and the brand.

“It is a privilege to be leading this project and our talented team of reporters, who are dedicated to doing their best for our readers and communitie­s.

“So please, keep up to date with all your local news by downloadin­g our Lanarkshir­e Live app now for free.”
