As we continue to bring you the latest from across Lancashire on our website and social media platforms, you can now find out what’s going on in the county through another app you likely already have installed.

Our WhatsApp Community will bring you the latest news including breaking news, weather updates, travel disruptions and more directly to your phone’s home screen. The popular app is already used by millions in the UK, and we have now launched a news initiative to help you keep in the know.

WhatsApp Communities is a one-way communication method by which we are able to send these stories as WhatsApp messages - so they’ll flag up on your phone just like other messages you receive through the app.

If you have WhatsApp downloaded on your phone, you can join the Lancashire Evening Post’s WhatsApp community here.

And don’t worry, no one else in the community who isn’t already in your contacts won’t be able to see any of your details and you will only receive messages from us - the community admins. And we won’t be spamming you with endless messages either. Just the latest and best from across Lancashire.
