SWNS is the largest independent news agency in the UK. We have more reporters, photographers and videographers outside of London than any other news provider.

Our wide geographical spread and 'boots on the ground' philisophy enables us to offer unrivalled coverage of breaking news events. Within minutes we will have reporters on scene and back-up staff in the office using digital tools to enhance our coverage.

We are the first people that most national news and picture desks ring when a big story breaks.

As a result, we have captured some of the most moving and spectacular images of the UK's main news events for four decades.

And along the way we have broken countless exclusive stories, from Royal scandals to serial killers and consumer exposes.
