National press ABC figures slump

National press ABC figures slump

 Every sector of the national press suffered year on year and month on month falls in circulation according to October's Audit Bureau of Circulations' report.

Newspapers had seen increased circulation in September, in the wake of the terrorist attacks on America'sWorld Trade Center.

However, the latest ABC figures show only a few titles faring better than at the same time last year, despite the ongoing drama of world events.

The only tabloids to see year-on-year increases were The Star and The Daily Mail.

Broadsheets fared slightly better in October, still benefiting from readers' desire for authoritative reports in the wake of recent world events.

The Guardian, The Observer and the Mail on Sunday were among Sundays to buck the general downward trend.
