A former Harborough Mail editor is publishing a blog about his research project into the First World War and how it was reported in the local press.

He is publishing a weekly analysis in real-time.

Mr Dilley, who was the Mail’s editor between 1992 and 1996, has been researching the archives of the Mail’s forerunner, the Market Harborough Advertiser, for his project.

Now the director of the Leicester Centre for Journalism at De Montfort University, Mr Dilley is conducting research into how local and national newspapers covered the First World War.
