The Citizen has a new website bringing you all you need to know about where you live from breaking news and sport to what’s on information, property, jobs and motors.

Gloucestercitizen.co.uk is also jam packed with videos and pictures - plus all the latest news on our county celebrities.

Editor Jenny Eastwood said: “This new site is about becoming a one stop shop for information about where you live complete with 24/7 breaking news and sport. There are also some great new features such as celebrity stories and our new video section.

“It is a work in progress and there will be a lot more development going on over the next few months but please, log on to Gloucestercitizen.co.uk and tell us what you think.”

* Coming soon: A new website for the Gloucestershire Echo and one for Stroud Life.

    And now, on some news articles on the TiG website, when you click on them you are initially taken to the page on TiG, but then it redirects to the same article either on the Citizen or Echo websites. I'm trying to read the articles on TiG as the presentation is usable. If I wanted to read them on the Citizen or Echo websites I'd have gone there to start with. Please remove the redirects from this website. Or sort out the utter mess that is the separate sites for each of the papers.

    And now the new dedicated Echo website has launched, and predictably it's as bad as the Citizen website is. Very poor effort. Did the powers-that-be at the newspapers actually check that the Web Designer they've employed to "create" these new websites has any relevant qualifications / experience???

    I have switched back to TiG as I find the Citizen Online clumsey, poor to navaigate and the font size over the top. Has the appearance of being very amateur and cheap.

    Why is this non-news article still one of the featured articles, at the top of the news page? Seems to be have been there for days. Is there nothing more important going on in the county, than a naff new website for one of the local newspapers...???

    'Sod the pot holes', read this: http://tinyurl.com/d9422hx Prosecutor Julian Kesner said when he was searched at Cheltenham Police Station, police found another 48.66grams of the drug, worth £2,400 down his boxer shorts. Defending, Daniel Woodman said Walsh, who lives with his parents in William Gough Close, Springbank, was a heavy drug user at the time. He told the court Walsh had agreed to look after the packages belonging to drug dealers for a while as there was a "lot of police presence" around them. He said: "There was some pressure put on him and you will know drug dealers are not the nicest people in the world. There was coercion, intimidation and pressure. "He did agree to help them and keep hold of the four wraps just for a short period of time and unfortunately he ended up being the taxi." Recorder Peter Towler said: "If he kept his MOT up-to-date, this would not have happened." Mr Woodman added that Walsh was since off drugs, had the support of his family and girlfriend and had even enlisted the help of a personal trainer to help turn his life around. Recorder Towler sentenced him to 12 months' jail, suspended for two years, with 12 months supervision, 200 hours unpaid work and ordered he paid £300 costs. He said: "You have got to stay out of trouble for two years at least, but I am hoping that you will stay out of trouble for the rest of your life." 'JOKE'

    Websites for each title? Hmm, must be the end of free on-line papers like some nationals are moving to subscription-only sites - a door-to-door Citizen canvasser tried to sell me a delivery subscription couple of years back and when I declined because I read on-line he responded that the paper was moving to pay-per-view on line. Will the gamble pay off? Can TiG titles interest anyone in paying?

    by NibNobs Most people I know glance at the first few pages whilst queuing at the supermarket checkout and put it back without buying a copy." That's probably what TiG base their 'readership' estimates on... *Please*, TiG, tell us how your actual sales are doing?
