Today, the UK Home Office released information that a new online crime mapping portal will be available for all of England and Wales by the end of the years. Both the Daily Mail and Times of London (Times Online) ran stories about the MyNeighbourhood.info, website. Both papers covered basically the same information and showed a map example of the website in their online editions but neither linked to the MyNeighbourhood.info website. Both papers are failing readers by not taking advantage of what the web offers online readers in providing simple links.
