Sunday Herald reports doubling of circulation after lone stand in favour of independence

The only Scottish daily or Sunday newspaper to declare its support for independence has reported a 111 per cent year on year increase in circulation.

The Sunday Herald has quoted internal figures showing a sale of 49,291 last week.

The paper said on Twitter: “We are speechless and very grateful.”

It became the first paper to declare its support for a yes vote in the Scottish independence referendum in May. Every other Scottish daily and Sunday newspaper subsequently stayed neutral or backed a no vote.

The Glasgow-based Sunday Herald had an average circulation in the first half of this year of 25,125.

The Sunday Herald's pre referendum front page is pictured above, with last week's front below (both are wrap arounds).
