UK free papers show stable circulation

In the first month without the competition of free daily Thelondonpaper, competitor London Lite did not increase circulation. The free afternoon paper by Associated Newspapers distributed a little over 400,000 copies like in all previous months of 2009.

Associated’s morning paper Metro increased its circulation only slightly with 8,000 copies to 1,338,000 after the holiday month of August.

Business free daily City AM also increased circulation after the ’slow’ months of July and August. It distributes 100,000 now, more than in the previous months but less than in April and May.

Overall the average circulation over the first nineĀ  months is stable compared to 2008: 1,335,000 for Metro, 401,000 for London Lite and 98,000 for City AM.
