Trinity Mirror are shutting down the Wirral News
Group this month, stating that there is too much competition for too thin a market.
I've noted a rash of up-market free magazines etc have been capturing the higher end of the market.
All-in-all this is probably for the best as it will hopefully stabilise one free newspaper (The Wirral Globe) which may be able to get better coverage as a result.
The shame is that the Wirral News
is the older and more traditional newspaper for the Wirral in its various incarnations (Birkenhead News
etc) but hopefully their archive is in the Wirral Archive Service now.
Their website has already closed down, I don't know which is their final printed edition.
