The first UK national newspaper circulation figures for 2020 show continued print decline across the industry.
No national newspapers recorded year-on-year circulation growth in January, new ABC figures show. Only free title the Metro held off a decline.
The Daily Star Sunday saw the biggest circulation drop for the period, falling by a fifth year-on-year to 162,345 copies.
Broadsheets the Times and the Financial Times both reported a drop in sales of 12 per cent year-on-year.
The figures no longer include the Telegraph titles, which pulled out of circulation auditing last month.
