Birmingham may scrap £600,000 a year council newspaper

Birmingham city council is considering whether to scrap its £600,000 a year fornightly newspaper in order to cut costs.

The paper had a circulation of 400,000 and competed with commercial news providers for advertising.

It has not been published since June when the printing contract with Trinity Mirror ended, the Birmingham Post reports.

Politicians from all sides have condemned council-owned newspapers for bias and for further undermining already under-threat local newspapers.
