End of the Courier

The Neath & Port Talbot Courier (a weekly insert with the Evening Post) ended as a separate title last Tuesday. The cost of production has proved too great for the Daily Mail group, which ultimately owns the title. With it also dies the Neath & Port Talbot Tribune. This had dwindled to a monthly four-page insert, published only, as I understand it, to fulfil an obligation in the contract when the publication was bought by the Evening Post people.

We are promised more pages of local news in the Evening Post on Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday. It remains to be seen whether the community news pages from the Courier (the main reason for reading it, in my opinion) are published together or spread over the three days.
