Today: Journalists let loose in Ballina

THIS morning The Northern Star is trying something different and holding our morning news meeting in public.

We'll be down at Ballina's Cafe Swish at 9am as we plan tomorrow's newspaper.

Come on down to see how our news team put a paper together - You may even be able to help us with the front page story AND we'll shout the coffee.

We'll be updating all the action here and using the Twitter hashtag #NorthernStarNewsMeeting
