The Kent Website since 1999
Our Kent local news headlines are below, each headline links to the full story on a separate page. At Yourcounty we have been featuring a range of local news stories since the year 2000. In that time the feedback from our users has been invaluable in shaping and developing our coverage. Is there a subject you think we should be featuring more often? Our feedback details are at the foot of the page.
The local news we feature covers a wide range of subject matter from the breadth of the county. We try very hard to make the news diverse and varied. Thus reflecting the nature of the county rather than our own particular preferences. Our own coverage of Kent news covers the traditional county boundary and includes Bromley, Bexley and Medway.
