How do I get in touch with the T&A news team?


I have a story! How do I speak to a T&A journalist?

If you have a story you'd like to discuss with our news team, you can call our newsdesk on 01274 705292. Alternatively, you can email newsdesk@telegraphandargus.co.uk or send us a message on Facebook.

Please make sure you include as much information as possible – and your contact details. Some people don’t want to be named in stories, and that’s fine – we won’t publish your identity if you make that request. But we'll probably need a contact number for you in case we need some more information.

You can contact our sport department on 01274 705249 or email mike.crowther@nqyne.co.uk

For leisure or entertainment related stories, call 01274 705261 or email emma.clayton@nqyne.co.uk


How do I get my community event in the T&A?
If there's something happening in your community, we'd love to know about it. From fundraising coffee mornings and fancy dress walks to village shows, galas and street parties - send your notices and pictures to communitynews@nqyne.co.uk.

If you would like to list an event in our online events calendar, you can do so for free here.


I'd like to share my opinion on an issue
We like to hear what you think on local issues. If you'd like to send your views in a letter to the editor to be considered for publication in the paper and online, you can email letters.tanda@telegraphandargus.co.uk or, if you prefer to put good old-fashioned pen to paper, you can write to us at Letters to the Editor, Telegraph & Argus, Hall Ings, Bradford BD1 1JR.
You'll need to include your name, street address and phone number, and keep it to a maximum of 200 words.

Why am I being asked to subscribe to the T&A website?


The Telegraph & Argus, along with a number of other news titles, has recently introduced a paid subscription model.

Readers are entitled to ten free articles per month, after which they are asked to register their details to access another ten free articles. Anyone who wishes to read more than 20 articles will be presented with the option of a 21-day free trial to our Premium package, providing them with unlimited and advert-light access, which will cost £4.99 per month after the free trial, unless the subscription is cancelled.

Some stories, including major breaking news stories and some court reports will remain free to all users and not count towards the article limit.

See a list of FAQs on the subscription scheme here


Why is a paywall necessary?
In the past, the cover price of a newspaper helped pay for the journalists who wrote the news and features inside. Advertising also contributed to the bottom line.

It is no secret that in the last few years every newspaper has experienced a decline in advertising revenue, yet the cost of our journalism remains the same.

The subscription model will help pay for the quality journalism that provides unrivalled coverage of Bradford and the surrounding district. No other news organisation comes close to the depth of coverage of the T&A.

We are the only news site with reporters in court and council every day. We cover all the breaking news in the district and write about the people and personalities that make Bradford the great city it is.

Our free article limit is one of the most generous in the industry. Many other news outlets only provide access to a handful of stories per month.

Quality journalism costs money to produce, but we have made it great value. For less than the cost of two cappuccinos you get unlimited access to all our content plus a much smoother browsing experience with stripped back advertising, which loads 70% faster. The latter is particularly noticeable if you read the site on a mobile or tablet.
