A story on car guards in East London allowed the Daily Dispatch to experiment with new forms of  journalism, according to deputy editor Andrew Trench on his blog. 

It began with an online survey, which turned into a story, which
drew comments.  Some traditional out-on-the-street reporting followed,
a story for the newspaper and finally the issue returned to the online
environment with some blog entries.

"This experience also shows how it is possible to generate unique content which can be reverse published back into the paper instead of the online operation merely being a daily dump of newspaper content," Trench comments.
