Trinity Sites Live Blog Credit Crisis

Journalists on three Trinity Mirror newspapers teamed up this week to produce a live blog on the current financial crisis.

Websites for the Birmingham Post, Liverpool Daily Post and Newcastle Journal all hosted the live blog providing real-time updates on falls in the share index, according to Press Gazette.

As well as breaking news on the UK stock market, the live blog encouraged direct input from users through comments and interactive polls.

The Banking Crisis Live Blog also featured internal links to in-depth articles and video reports posted on the three news sites, and external links to resources such as the Treasury statement published in full on bbc.co.uk.

Running through Tuesday and Wednesday, the live blog covered both the announcement of the government’s support package for banks and the Bank of England’s interest rate cut.
