A regional daily newspaper is increasing its cover price by five pence following a recent switch to overnight printing.
The increase will come into effect at the Edinburgh Evening News from today, with each copy now costing 70p.
The switch to overnight printing was made earlier this year in a move which owner Johnston Press said was made in line with similar changes across both the company and the industry in general.
Despite Malcolm Chisholm, MSP for Edinburgh Northern and Leith, questioning whether the Evening News should consider a name change due to the switch, JP says there are no such plans in place.
A Johnston Press spokeswoman said: “At 70p the EEN represents great value for a title packed with local news, views and information.
“A recent switch to overnight printing – which means the EEN is now available earlier in the day – has been well received by our customers and we’re pleased with early sales figures.”
