Kettering Mercury & Citizen (defunct)

The Kettering Mercury & Citizen was a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper for the town of Kettering in north-eastern Northamptonshire and the surrounding towns and villages, including nearby Desborough and Rothwell.

It was published by Northamptonshire Newspapers, part of the nationwide regional and local newspaper publishing group Johnston Press‘s Midland Division. The editorial offices were in Kettering and were collocated with Northamptonshire Newspapers’ evening title for the area, the Northants Evening Telegraph (which became the Northamptonshire Telegraph in May 2012).

It had no website of its own; the link below is to the Telegraph‘s website.

It came out on Thursdays.

It merged with the Wellingborough & Rushden Mercury & Citizen and the Corby Mercury & Citizen at the end of August 2008 to form the Northants Mercury & Citizen.
