About us

Birkenhead News is a local news organisation, providing local news stories for Wirral and the wider area.

Unlike other local news outlets, Birkenhead News is Wirral based and Wirral owned. We are independent and do not belong to any larger news group, so there is no out-of-area head office authorising or restricting what we publish.

We aim, through our editorial choices, to highlight stories that other news outlets may not cover and we are unwaveringly guided by our principles of people and community first.

You can trust our news stories, as Birkenhead News is a member of the Independent Press Standards Organisation (which regulates the UK’s magazine and newspaper industry). We abide by the Editors’ Code of Practice and are committed to upholding the highest standards of journalism.

If you think that we have not met those standards and want to make a complaint, please contact news@birkenhead.news. If we are unable to resolve your complaint, or if you would like more information about IPSO or the Editors’ Code, contact IPSO on 0300 123 2220 or visit www.ipso.co.uk.
