A bit about us

NORTH NEWS AND PICTURES has its roots in the mainstream national media, and was founded by Ted Ditchburn, a photographer, and Jane Morton, a journalist, in 1984.

Over the years the company grew to become one of the most respected press agencies in the country, supplying pictures and stories from the North East and Cumbria to national newspapers, magazines, TV and radio.

Almost 40 years on, North News continues to have close working relationships with both national and local press, but we also create content for a growing number of corporate clients, including public sector organisations, universities, hospitals, PR agencies and many more.

As a result of our heritage and ties with traditional media, we are results driven, extremely hard working and perfectly placed to secure excellent coverage for our customers, if desired.

We have a small but skilled, friendly and professional team of journalists and photographers / videographers who are adept at producing high quality content on deadline - whether that be for social media, website or print.

In September 2020, the company was passed on to Victoria Williams, who had worked at North News as a reporter for 11 years. Despite now being the managing director, she is very much hands on, and is involved in the business at every level. She enjoys listening to what clients want, and making sure her team delivers according to their specific needs and requirements.

We love what we do, and are contactable 24/7, 365 days of the year. To find out more, get in touch - info@northnews.co.uk / 0191 265 7624
