Free London Lite newspaper facing closure
The free evening paper London Lite is facing closure, it was announced today.
Associated Newspapers said it has entered a period of consultation over the future of the newspaper, "which may result in closure".
A consultation will take place with 36 London Lite employees before a final decision is made.
Steve Auckland, managing director, Associated Newspapers Free Division, said: "The latest development in the London afternoon free newspaper space dictates that we look again at the future of London Lite.
"Despite reaching a large audience with an excellent editorial format, we are concerned about the commercial viability in this highly competitive area."
The announcement comes weeks after the Evening Standard, which covers the London area, went free.
