May ABCs: National press sales tumble across the board

Only three newspapers increased circulation year on year in May: the i, Daily Star Sunday and the Sunday Mirror.

While i is bouyed by a high proportion of free bulk copies, the two Sunday redtops continue to be benefit from the exit from the market of the News of the World. The Daily Star Sunday is the only title to have held on to significant gains since the launch of the The Sun Sunday.

Elsewhere across the market print newspaper sales continue to tumble year on year.
