"But SourceBottle also caters for journalists who don’t want their call out shared via social media or who wish to remain anonymous or avoid having their publication or media outlet named."

Ms Derrington said she was thrilled with the uptake of the service and the quality of the leads posted.
"Journalists have told me they’re amazed at the caliber of the sources they’ve accessed through the site.
"And they love that their personal details, including their email address, aren’t displayed on the site or made available to people responding to the call outs," she said.
