As a news agency supplying the national and international media, we rely on the bond of trust that is created between journalist and contact, constantly checking facts and articulating stories for those without the means to do so themselves.

In a multi-media age, we apply those same defining standards to our work with video and online as we do to traditional print, which is why we are proud to follow the Code of Practice laid down by The Independent Press Standards Organisation (IPSO).

We welcome story enquiries, tip-offs and bona fide PR commissions through our offices.
