Sunday success

SALES OF the Independent on Sunday are booming. The latest circulation figures released last week reveal that sales in October jumped by more than 16,000 to 267,762, a 6.7 per cent increase on the previous month and a rise of 3.6 per cent on the same period last year. The daily Independent also continued to grow, with October sales of 230,677, up 8,000 on the previous month and an increase of 3.4 per cent on last year.

Brendan Hopkins, chief executive of Independent News and Media, said: "These figures result from significant improvements to both titles. We intend to announce further substantial investment early in the new year."

Our continuing success is based on the sharpest news, sport and business coverage, along with an unrivalled team of columnists and critics, including Salman Rushdie, Jo Brand, Joan Smith, Alan Watkins, Bea Campbell, Fay Weldon, Gilbert Adair, David Thomson, Matthew Collings, and Brian Viner - every weekend, the cream of journalism.
