Online Users Count Cost Of Budget

Several local news sites took the opportunity of last week’s Budget to introduce an interactive element to their coverage.

Publisher Archant livened up its online reporting with a Budget Calculator, which enabled visitors to work out how the changes would affect them.

The feature focused on users’ spending habits regarding alcohol, tobacco and petrol to help them calculate the cost to their pocket of the price rises.

Offering an even more detailed picture was the Budget Calculator from the Manchester Evening News, which also took into account household incomes and expenditure on flights.

For further examples of local press coverage of the Budget, take a look at the comments submitted to this Press Gazette blog post.
