The Guardian and i were the only two UK national titles which managed to increase print sales year on year in February.
The Independent’s cut-price stablemate rose 0.64 per cent year on year to an average of 300,110 sales a day. A price increase from 20p to 30p at the end of February did not appear to affect the figures.
The Guardian achieved a 1.5 per cent lift year on year to 196,425 despite selling for £1.60 last month versus £1.40 in the same period a year earlier.
Senior BBC staff working in the commercial sector could earn double their six-figure wages, a senior BBC executive has claimed.
The BBC’s director of television, Danny Cohen, who earns £320,000 a year, defended executive salaries as the BBC came under increased pressure for its decision to take BBC Three off the air in order to save £100 million, according to The Times.
