The Lancashire Telegraph website provides us with new ways to keep our readers informed and entertained.

We were the first regional newspaper in the UK to start publishing articles online every day.

15 years on, our commitment to bringing you the latest East Lancs news and sport is stronger than ever, whether in the newspaper or online.

But our website offers lots of features that just aren't possible in print.

For instance, our football podcast is enjoyed by up to 1,000 listeners each week, while hundreds watched our live video broadcasts at Question Time-style political debates and football press conferences.

Our website also informs you about what’s happening locally.

Our live travel news feed is updated 24 hours a day with road closures and rail delays.

You can also find out what’s on in the area with our newly-revamped entertainment listings service.

And when snow caused chaos across the area earlier this year, our information on school and road closures proved invaluable for readers.

Last week we pulled out all the stops to keep East Lancashire informed with a 20-hour blog, updated every few minutes with instant news, results, gossip, videos and photos from our journalists at the election counts.

Thousands of readers followed the twists and turns, adding hundreds of comments and Twitter posts.

The overwhelming response to our election coverage is an example of the changing relationship between the newspaper and you, the reader.

Rather than just read our news, East Lancastrians can now tell us what’s on their mind by posting comments on news stories and on our forum.

Thanks to you, we’ve built up one of the most active online communities of any local newspaper website in the country.

Just register at any time and you can join the debate.

If your comment catches our eye, it could even be published on the newspaper letters page as well.
