An update on our website's commenting function.

We love to be in conversation with our readers - and that's why we're changing the way you can share your views on our stories.

We're making it easier for you to have your say on our city's news, from our Safe A19 campaign to the latest updates from the Stadium of Light.

We are now using Facebook for our comments section - so all you need to do is click on the comments icon, and log in with your Facebook account.

This method is currently being tested with some of our content, and we hope the system will be fully operational after the bank holiday weekend.

You can also have your voice heard by liking our Facebook page and following our reporting team on Twitter.
