Regional ABCs: Three out of 86 dailies put on sales

Regional dailies suffer average year on year decline of 6.5 per cent.

Three of the 86 regional daily newspapers in the UK put on circulation year on year in the last six months of 2010.

The three circulation growers were DC Thomson's Dundee Evening Telegraph, which rose 3.4 per cent to an average sale of 23,331 copies a day and Archant's two Norfolk Dailies: the Eastern Daily Press (up 0.4 per cent to 59,389) and the Evening News (up 0.5 per cent to 18,923).

Archant chief executive Adrian Jeakings said: "These results are extraordinary - a remarkable performance."

Elsewhere the print circulation market remains extremely tough for regional dailies - with the average rate of decline running at 6.5 per cent year on year.
