    ITV News have announced a set of major enhancements to regional news programmes to improve the service to viewers across the country.

    Key changes include:

    ? the overall number of 6pm flagship regional news programmes is being increased from 16 to 17

    ? a new service aimed at the Thames Valley will be introduced

    ? separate editions of Calendar will be set up for the east and west of the ITV Yorkshire region

    ? the trial of running two editions of Tyne Tees? North East Tonight, one for the north of the region and one for the south, will become permanent

    ? ITV West?s broadcasting footprint is being expanded to include the area around Gloucester and Cheltenham

    The changes are the result of a widespread review of ITV?s regional news services in England and Wales. The review?s objective was to prioritise the regional flagship programmes and to ensure ITV broadcasts to identifiable regions.
