A former Mail editor is delving into the archives as part of a research project looking at how the regional press covered the outbreak of the First World War 100 years ago.

John Dilley wants to compare their coverage with that of national newspapers for an academic study to mark the 100th anniversary of the start of the war.

John, the director of the Leicester Centre for Journalism at De Montfort University, is working on the project with colleague David Penman, a former editor of the Mail’s sister title the Northamptonshire Telegraph.
