The new-look Star was given a warm reception by readers at Crystal Peaks Shopping Centre in Sheffield.

We asked for you views on the new design which was revealed in yesterday’s paper.

And lots of readers stepped forward to let us know what they thought.

Editor Jeremy Clifford and Readers’ Champion Nancy Fielder were on hand to answer questions and listen to opinions.

There was praise for many aspects, ranging from content to headlines, and plenty of discussion about the new crossword.

One of our teenage readers Michael Maloney, aged 15, said: “I read The Star every day from front to back and have done since I was a lot younger. I enjoy it because it gives me a lot of information and local news.”

You can join the Editor for a live chat between 6pm and 7pm today at thestar.co.uk/news/star-live-talk.
