The newsroom in Wrexham is the hub for coverage of the whole of north east Wales, writes news organiser Cath Steward.

We have reporters based all over the patch covering news stories for Welsh and English language television, radio and online news. We also have camera crews and radio car operators living in the area, so when a big story breaks we're ready to move.

Our reporters are multi-skilled and most work for radio and television, with many recording their own material as well as editing it. Time is always of the essence and we always aim to get the news on air as quickly as we can, without breaking any speed limits!

The reporting team is a dedicated lot, with staff having to be prepared to drop everything when the need arises in order to get the news out.

Nick and Alys manage the BBC Local website, work on community projects, deal with submissions from contributors and use a range of social media tools like the North East Wales Weblog to share and discuss what's being said about north east Wales online.

The site was the first of five local BBC services in Wales and was launched in January 2002 followed by its Welsh language sister site, Lleol .

The websites are designed to be trusted guides to the region with a number of useful links to a host of local sources and encourages people to have their say and to get in touch about any local issue which they think should be being covered.
