It was founded in 1987 as a replacement for an earlier title, the Loughborough News. It was published by Leicester Mercury Group Ltd (part of the Northcliffe Media group of regional newspapers, which in turn was part of the Daily Mail & General Trust until it was spun off to form the new Local World media group at the end of 2012).
It was the local freesheet companion to Northcliffe’s paid-for daily title for the whole county, the Leicester Mercury. The editorial offices were in Leicester.
It had no website of its own; the link below is to Northcliffe’s website for the county, thisisleicestershire.co.uk, which used to be their newspapers’ website but in early 2011 became a portal to which the papers merely contributed news.
It came out on Thursdays.
It ceased publication in early 2012.
