It was published by Trinity Mirror Southern as part of a two-title subseries of the Harrow Leader together with the Willesden Leader. The Leader series were companion freesheets to the Harrow & Wembley Observer series, the paid title for the area. The Brent edition of The Leader was launched in 1983; the Wembley Leader first appeared under that title in 1988.
Its web presence was through the Observer’s website.
It came out on Wednesdays.
The Leader series was incorporated into the Observer series – which became mostly freesheet – in October 2010.
