(North West) - which, as a result, only highlights
important, local issues
, such as fires or criminal activity. Alternatively, National headlines can be broadcast on Local radio, providing they have a
connection to the region
. For instance, the Michael Le Vell (Coronation Street's Kevin Webster) rape allegation was a nationwide story, yet it also appeared on North West, or Greater Manchester, Radio stations, due to the actor being from the Manchester area - where the Soap is set. Meanwhile, Community Radio is also generally used for

This links to the
type of news
that is covered, of course, as community radio stations are specific to
local news and projects
, so items on the station are generally
less important and prominent,
compared to local, national or international radio stations.
