The Yorkshire Evening Post is preparing a “striking new design and feel” next year.

It’s currently recruiting readers to join a panel to provide feedback on plans to overhaul the title.

“We are keenly aware that a newspaper is nothing without its readers,” explained editor, Jeremy Clifford.

“That’s why we are aiming to engage with our readers even more than we have done in the past. These are exciting times for the YEP and we’re hoping that people across Leeds will want to get involved with a paper that can be relied upon to stand up for their interests.”

The reader panel was first launched back in 2009 and a year later, there were more than 1000 members.
