How to tip off the press about a breaking news story

When comedian Michael McIntyre was attacked by a moped-gang on the streets of London, Talk to the Press broke the news with the national press.

Moments after the incident took place, an anonymous passerby phoned us up to discuss what had happened.

The tipster did not have any photographs, video, or evidence that the incident took place. Only their first-hand account.

Deputy Editor Courtney took the phone call and took down all of the details and within minutes she was able to dispatch a reporter to the scene of the crime and make phone calls to verify the incident.

In doing this, our agency were able to capture exclusive footage and photographs of the incident and sell them to The Sun newspaper off the back of the tip off.

The next day, the story was on the front page of the paper and we negotiated a substantial fee for the tipster, who simply tipped off the press about a news story.
