Mapped: How the regional press covered the public sector strike

Depending on where you live in the country, the national public sector strike may have brought your area to a standstill or had very little impact at all.

For the regional press, it’s one of those stories which gets saturation coverage in the national media, but which still provides an opportunity to provide something completely different within the same story – local coverage.

Below is a Google map of the front pages relating to the strike which appeared today. I’ll add tomorrow’s front pages sometime tomorrow. If yours doesn’t appear, it’s not personal – I just haven’t seen it. If you want to send one to me, please send it to david.higgerson[at]
