Join LeicestershireLive on WhatsApp to get the latest news straight to your phone

LeicestershireLive is dedicated to bringing you the latest news from the city and county every day, but juggling daily tasks while trying to keep up with what's happening can be a struggle.

To make things easier for our readers, we've launched a WhatsApp community to deliver the biggest headlines straight to your phone - and members will get Leicestershire's most important breaking news first.

We initially launched our WhatsApp community last year, and hundreds of you joined in the first few days, but we had to stop updating it due to technical difficulties.

Now we have launched our brand new WhatsApp community, and we would love you to be a part of it. As long as you have got WhatsApp downloaded on your phone, you will be able to join. It's free.

We won't spam you constantly, but we will send you the top local headlines and breaking news. It's an easy way to stay on top of the most important things happening in Leicester and Leicestershire.

All you need to do is click this link to join the community and you're in. We also treat our community members to special offers, promotions and adverts from us and our partners. If you decide for any reason that you no longer want to be in our community, you can leave by clicking on the name at the top of your screen and tapping 'exit group'.

So if you love knowing what's going on in your area, become part of our new Whatsapp community. If you don’t like it, you can check out any time you like. If you’re curious, you can read our Privacy Notice.

We cannot accept incoming calls on the phone number used for WhatsApp - if you want to get in touch with us, email

If you joined our previous community, feel free to delete it. We won't be updating it.
