A PR guru is turning his passion for punk into a business venture.

Keith Newman, of Ulgham, has been running public relations company Highlights PR since 2008.

But now the Radio Northumberland presenter is branching out into the music industry with photographer Angela Carrington of The Bigger Picture.

The pair have already worked with Ex-Angelic Upstart Decca Wade and The Moscow Mules, Pauline Murray of Penetration, former Lindisfarne member Steve Cunningham and bands This Ground Moves and The Champagne Charlie’s, providing press releases, photography and advice.

Mr Newman said: “We decided to offer an affordable package for bands, musicians and artists.”
