Public Sector: Web offer from Surrey

Surrey County Council's comms team has launched a digital press office to provide journalists with information in various formats.

The initiative will enable journalists to find the latest news, tweets and videos from the authority in one place.

Louise Footner, Surrey County Council's head of comms, said: 'Journalists expect to be able to find out what is happening in a range of different formats.

'While we have been using these new formats for some time, the digital press office puts them all in one place. The exciting thing is that councils can now develop this sort of resource extremely quickly and for free.'

As well as being available in formats for smartphones such as BlackBerry and iPhone, it will provide RSS feeds, allowing journalists to receive information on specific subjects.
