Two journalists to launch news agency for true-life stories

John Jeffay, former picture editor of Manchester Evening News (MEN), and former columnist Angela Eps

Jeffay, who also worked as syndication editor at MEN, left the paper in October after certain functions at the title were centralised.

Epstein, who worked with the Bury Times for six years, currently writes on health and women's issues as well as true-life stories.

She recently featured in the Channel 4 documentary My daughter grew another head and other true life stories.
