About the UK24hit

UK24hit is the digital arm of the Daily Express and Sunday Express - one of Britain’s most famous and trusted news brands.

Since 1900 the Express has been at the forefront of the news, and a fundamental part of the fabric of British life, crusading for truth and dignity and bringing millions of readers informed coverage of the most important world events in both print and online.

The Express has stood up for Britain, talked common sense, and fought for the rights of hard-working men and women across the country.

Every day we endeavour to provide our readers with the very best journalism, to inform and entertain. We are committed to reporting the news accurately, fairly and vigorously and will always hold those in authority to account.

We are a proudly conservative newspaper on the centre right of British politics but our core loyalty will always be to our readers above any political party or movement.

We have campaigned and crusaded for causes close to our readers’ hearts including ending the cystic fibrosis drug scandal, crusading for better treatment for veterans suffering from mental health problems and exiting the European Union.

We are delighted to be working with the The Trust Project within Reach PLC as we endeavour to make it simpler for readers of all ages and from all around the world to discover who we are and what we believe in.

Verification and fact checking

We expect our staff to use their best endeavours to verify the stories being put forward for publication.

Unnamed sources

Journalists have an obligation under IPSO’s Editors’ Code of Practice to protect their sources, but we also have a duty to establish that the sources we use are reliable and that material has been appropriately obtained. Story provenance is ultimately the responsibility of the Editor.

When using unnamed sources, the company relies on the integrity, experience and professionalism of its staff.
