The Press Association has launched an online video archive containing more than 40,000 news clips.

The archive will provide PA's newspaper, online and broadcast clients with searchable video of current affairs, sports and entertainment news from across the UK.

The file-based service includes raw video in addition to pre-packaged voiced news stories. Tony Watson, managing director of the Press Association, said: "The Press Association prides itself on providing fast, fair and accurate coverage of news from every corner of the UK, and this is reflected in the depth and quality of our archive.

"This is an exciting new service which we believe will be of enormous value to a diverse range of clients for use across a wide variety of platforms."
