The Times launches its new 24 hour websites today with an eye on publishing the breaking news stories from your area as they happen.

The new websites mean we will be able to deliver all the breaking news from your area as we develop an online project that will let readers comment on stories, take part in online polls as well as watch and submit video and audio.

It will also allow us to harness the energy of those in the community, young and old, who wish to follow the example of Brent Youth Parliament and its new monthly column in contributing stories and getting involved with the paper.

Geoff Martin, Times editor in chief, said: “This is a big chance for everyone to get involved, whether it’s someone who has something to say about what we are writing, a letter to the editor, or an aspiring journalist who fancies writing a piece as a contributor. While we can’t guarantee that we can accommodate everyone in the paper, our online space is effectively limitless, so I look forward to hearing your ideas.”

The Times is already developing a web page for young people, an online Queen’s Park Rangers (QPR) history section as well as nostalgia and archives from the Kilburn Times, which was founded as an independent weekly newspaper in 1867 by Willesden Press Association.

The owners then launched the Willesden Chronicle and Herald in 1877, which became Willesden & Brent Chronicle in 1964, before it was changed again to the Willesden & Brent Times in 2005.
