      Would be interesting to also see the corresponding ABCe (online) figures for the same titles. Is the audience of these newspapers simply changing the medium they use to access the content or are these local papers loosing their audience to online alternatives.

      It would be interesting to cross a chicken with a donkey.

      Can you make it clear that you are not including all ABC figures in this. Fair enough if you want to remove figures for council newspapers, but if they are being audited in the same way as all the above I think that in the interests of fair and accurate reporting you should tell us.
