The weather at the latter part of February possibly had a small adverse effect on a few of the numbers for February 2018. While the papers published (there are no exceptions in the certs) it’s impossible to know how many retail outlets the managed to get to.

Interestingly the Sun and The Times were big faller’s month on month (-1770 and -2770 respectively) along with the Sunday Mirror (-2870). Conversely the Sundays had a decent month with the Sunday Times adding 1,800 and that includes a small reduction in their bulks standing at 5,700 last month.

Sunday market steady month on month, daily back 3% on January.
