All about the United Kingdom’s national, regional and local press

Cambridge News

The Cambridge News is a daily tabloid newspaper sold from Mondays to Saturdays in the city of Cambridge and an area covering roughly a 30-mile radius around the city, including the towns of Ely, March, Huntingdon, St Ives and St Neots in Cambridgeshire; Royston in Hertfordshire; Saffron Walden in Essex; and Haverhill, Newmarket and Mildenhall in Suffolk.

It was founded in 1888 as the Cambridge Daily News by William Farrow Taylor. The Iliffe family acquired it in the 1920s, sold it in 1938 and then reacquired it in 1959. It became the Cambridge News for the first time in 1962, then switched to evening publication as the Cambridge Evening News in 1969. However, in 2007 a “sunrise” edition called simply the Cambridge News was launched; the evening edition was withdrawn in 2008. Following the merger of Iliffe News & Media with the Daily Mail & General Trust‘s regional publishing division, Northcliffe Media, the News has been published by the new media group formed thereby, Local World.

The editorial offices are in Milton to the north-east of Cambridge and are shared with the News‘s eight companion weekly freesheets:
