If you're not sure that a snippet of local news you've seen on social media is fact or fake we can check it out.

E-mail our hotline at news@harrogateadvertiser.co.uk with a screen grab of the item or all the details you have and our trained professionals will investigate.

The story needs to be local and it must be passing itself off as news - perhaps it is an alleged crime or a claim about a council decision.

We'll let you know the outcome of our investigation - and we will share the truth with our readers too. If we don't have the resources to check it out on this occasion will tell you that as well.
