Ripley & Heanor Express (defunct)

The Ripley & Heanor Express was a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper delivered to homes in the towns of Ripley and Heanor and surrounding villages in Derbyshire’s Amber Valley District.

It was published by the Derby Telegraph Media Group, a branch of Northcliffe Media, which was then the regional newspaper publishing division of the Daily Mail & General Trust. It was one of a series of Express titles, all based at the same editorial offices in Derby; it was founded in 1989 when the Derby Express split into five editions.

It had no website of its own; its Internet presence was through Northcliffe’s website.

It came out on Thursdays. It merged with the Ilkeston Express in 2011 to form the Ilkeston, Ripley & Heanor Express.
