Circulation woe for national titles in November

A fairly woeful set of national newspaper ABC figures for November showed only three national newspapers selling more last month than they did a year ago.

The worst performer was the Evening Standard – still suffering badly from the launch of rival free afternoon newspapers in London, thelondonpaper and London Lite. Its sale was down 21.37 per cent year-on-year to 272,448.

The only papers to achieve year-on-year growth were the Financial Times (up 0.27 per cent), the Mail on Sunday (up 2.19 per cent ) and The Observer (up 2.56 per cent).

In the London free newspaper war, News International's thelondonpaper gave away more copies in November – 425,508 a day on average, compared with London Lite on 395,048.
