About us

With a readership of more than 350,000 people, Wiltshire 999s is the county’s biggest independent news website dedicated to covering the work of the emergency services.

Every day – rain or shine – our dedicated reporters and photographers work to break the latest 999 news from across Swindon and Wiltshire. From murder to mental health, our team professionally and sensitively report on hard-hitting, sometimes heart-breaking, stories – always reporting reality.

On average, our readers generate upwards of one million page views each month.

We regularly run fundraising campaigns on behalf of those affected by 999 incidents. Since 2018, we’ve raised over £31,000. For example, in March 2020 we raised more than £26,000 for a 89-year-old beekeeper who lost his setup in an arson attack and in January 2021, we handed over nearly £1,300 to an elderly man who’s home and possessions were destroyed in a fire on Christmas Day.

Wiltshire 999s sells news content – including information, words and pictures – to national newspapers on a regular basis, both directly and via agencies. Our content can be viewed in/on the BBC, The Sun, the Daily Mail, The Mirror, Metro, The Guardian and TheLADbible to name just a few.
