Reading the local paper is second nature to many people. Somehow it just turns up every week. But who are the people who provide our fix of local news and scandal? What tales could they tell of what really goes on behind the headlines? Here, three journalists with nearly 150 years' collective experience tell their linked stories. Ken McEwan, John Dowling and Philip Elms began their careers in the same small office on the south coast of England in the 1960s. They went on to follow different strands of journalism. Eventually, they left the industry together as the recession of 2009 ravaged the newspaper business. Their stories are often revealing, sometimes funny, occasionally sad, but never dull. Who better to put a human face on life at the local paper?
