THE online version of the Evening Times is the fastest growing regional news website in the UK.

Our digital offering saw a rise in daily browsers of nearly 75% - giving us 24,587 visits each day. The figures were released last night by ABC - the industry body for media measurement.

The Evening Times website was relaunched with a new look last year and it has clearly been popular with readers.

Deputy editor Rob Bruce said: "It is gratifying to see that the hard work we have put into our website over the last year has proved so popular with our readers."
