YouTube has teamed up with a San Francisco television station, ABC7 News, to publish video news reports produced by citizens.
Users can email in their photo or video reports, or upload them direct to a Google map here.
Since the site went live six days ago, users have uploaded footage of emergency services responding to an incident, a brief interview with a local candidate for an election and footage of a protest. Videos are categorised into breaking news, events, weather and bay area scenes.
