Daily News's 20th

Plans are being drawn up – details to be released later – to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the founding of Europe’s first free city daily newspaper.

The Daily News was set up by entrepreneur Chris Bullivant and first appeared in October 1984.

The paper, later owned by Reed, was delivered to up to 340,000 homes in Birmingham and Solihull four mornings a week. Its demise came in 1991 when it became a weekly and changed its name to Metro News.
