A free newspaper launched nine months ago at the height of the Birmingham ‘newspaper war’ has been suspended from publication.
Following a bitter six-month battle for control of the lucrative property advertising market in the second city, Mr Bullivant admitted defeat in October and announced he was “withdrawing” his titles from the market.
It later emerged that the Press had gone bust with debts of £343,186, including more than £37,000 owed to freelances.
The Post Lite was distributed to 18,000 homes in areas such as Solihull, Harborne and Sutton Coldfield – the same upmarket suburbs The Press had previously been targeting.
However the paper, which was normally published on Thursdays, has not appeared since before Christmas.
Contacted by HTFP yesterday, a Trinity Mirror spokesman confirmed that the title is currently “suspended.”
The spokesman was unable to say if or when it would resume publication.
