We’re the first to break stories in Bournemouth, covering important issues, we talk about mental health and hold the university and power to account.

Other Bournemouth news we’ve covered includes cladding similar to Grenfell found on a building that houses students, a Mumps outbreak on campus and reports of homophobia and racism.

We also do fun features, like how not to get screwed over by your landlord, going to every single ‘Spoons in Bournemouth and ranking which is the best.
