Prime Minister David Cameron dropped into the Northumberland Gazette office during today’s visit to Alnwick.
During his half-hour visit to the office on Bondgate Without, he met staff and talked about local newspapers and how the media environment had changed in the past decade.
It is thought to be the first time a Prime Minister has visited the Gazette in its 150-year-plus history.
Gazette editor Paul Larkin said: “It was great to have such a high-profile politician visiting the Northumberland Gazette. As far as we know, it’s the first time a PM has come to the newspaper’s headquarters. Ahead of what is likely is to be the most closely-fought election in living memory, it was good to be able to sound him out on how Conservative policies will affect Northumberland voters.”
