The Manchester Evening News is experimenting with clickable interactive front pages, in what is thought to be an industry first.
Reporter Pete Bainbridge introduced the idea after learning about Thinglink on a training session.
Thinglink is a website which allows users to attach links to web pages from pictures or videos.
The interactive pages are being hosted on the M.E.N.’s daily live breaking news blogs. Readers can hover over stories on a digital image of the front page, and click through to where that story is hosted on www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk.
This morning, Interactive player ratings (pictured below) from Manchester City’s 2-1 defeat to CSKA Moscow in the Champions League last night, were also made available.
"We've been using Thinglink to add information to pictures for a while now," Pete told HoldTheFrontPage.
"Recently, I trained on it and thought it would be an interesting way of presenting our splash, when we tweet it out and use it on the live blog.
"Readers just have to click on the part of the front page they want to read and it takes them straight to the article."
