Behind the scenes

  • Manchester Evening News is a real-world tabloid newspaper, founded in 1868.
  • The newspaper is clearly featured in the earlier versions of the "Extra Stuff" section on J. K. Rowling's Official Site. In more recent updates of the website, this newspaper clipping became almost completely covered by photos and a white piece of paper.
