Every national loses print sales in March

Every national newspaper lost print circulation year on year in March, figures released today by ABC reveal.

Growth of The Independent’s new cut-price stablemate ‘i’ seems to have levelled off. It saw a slight month-on-month drop from 175,714 to 171,415 sales a day.

The worst performer in a particularly tough month for print sales was the Glasgow-based Sunday Herald which fell 27.5 per cent year on year to 31,123 sales a week. Amid staff cutbacks it relaunched as a news magazine in January.
