BBC News 24 has launched a news programme based entirely on user-generated material.

Your News, which began a pilot run on Saturday, will feature stories, features and video proving most popular with viewers on TV and the internet.

Kevin Bakhurst, controller of BBC News 24, said: "Your News will make use of the huge range of material being sent to the BBC by the public, some of which has already provided real newsgathering value.

"Your News will reflect the stories catching our audience's eye and talk to them directly about the issues they feel really matter."

BBC News website receives around 10,000 emails a day with story suggestions, comments and pictures from the public.

Presented by Richard Bilton and Laura Jones, the show will contain weekly features that will look at news reports covering issues raised by members of the public (called Your Story) and a section where reporters try to find answers to questions sent in to the BBC by the public (Your Questions).

The programme will also have a weekly feature focusing on images sent into the BBC by the public.
