Welcome to MyWigan, the local site bringing you the best news coverage of your town.

MyWigan will report on the latest breaking news plus a range of brilliant and entertaining features on what makes life in Wigan so unique.

We will be covering the town and surrounding areas from Tyldesley, Atherton and Leigh up to Standish and Shevington.

The Manchester Evening News has covered Wigan for over 150 years but the MyWigan channel will report on the town in far greater depth.

We recruited a team of reporters earlier this year who will focus on covering the local stories you care about, bringing with them the M.E.N.'s trusted news values and standards.

As well as a dedicated website page at mywigan.news, we have launched a Facebook page and Twitter feed.

You can also personalise the Manchester Evening News app to see Wigan headlines and there will be other ways to find MyWigan stories to follow on later.

Because of the Covid-19 epidemic, our journalists are working from home but they are still able to get out and about to cover Wigan stories on the ground.

If you have a Wigan story you think we should be covering, don't hesitate to let us know.

As well as court hearings, council meetings and press conferences, the MyWigan team will be bringing you the human stories that get everyone talking.
