Britain's Independent newspaper to cease print editions

12 February 2016, 16:11

London — The owners of Britain's Independent newspaper say it will publish its last print edition next month.

ESI Media said Friday that The Independent's final paper edition will appear March 26. Sister paper the Independent on Sunday will end with the March 20 issue.

Owner Evgeny Lebedev says the Independent brand will continue online. It's not clear how many staff will lose their jobs.

The Independent was founded in 1986, and has employed high-profile journalists including Robert Fisk, Will Self and Helen Fielding, creator of "Bridget Jones's Diary."

Like other papers The Independent has seen its print circulation plummet the rise of digital media. It now distributes fewer than 60,000 copies a day, down from a high of more than 400,000.
