Fighting Fake News has seen hundreds of local papers highlight their highly-trusted credentials through features and news stories.

The campaign, which launched a week ago and will continue to run up to and through Local Newspaper Week (May 15-12), has prompted Prime Minister Theresa May to comment on the dangers of fake news on social media and the importance of a free press.

LNW will see the public invited to vote for their favourite local newspaper campaign.
