Welcome to your new-look Bournemouth Echo website.

With a modern, fresh layout, the homepage has been redesigned to provide an improved reader experience.

We’ve introduced a new sports section and placed greater emphasis on our news stories, displaying far more stories and pictures than ever before.

Site navigation has improved too, providing quick links to important categories such as jobs, what’s on and announcements.

Scroll down the page to discover content from a variety of sections and check out our new ‘Trending across the UK’ section that showcases viral content from our sister websites up and down the country, keeping you abreast of content that’s being shared among our readers.

Our article pages too have been given a makeover with a cleaner look and more space to read.

We hope you enjoy your new-look site and stay tuned for further improvements in the coming months!
