Police tweet the news as local press declines

Sad to hear Manchester Chief Constable Peter Fahy on the Today programme this morning saying it's got "more difficult to get out information, particularly with the decline of local newspapers."

Fahy was talking about why the Greater Manchester force had decided to put out information on Twitter today. Not sure that tweets on shoplifting and fireworks being let off by youths in Salford will ever adequately replace the likes of the Manchester Evening News' award winning former crime correspondent Steve Panter.
