It was published by Trinity Mirror Southern’s West London & Bucks Newspapers group from editorial offices in Harrow. The series was launched in 1981 as a companion to the Ealing Gazette series of paid-for weekly tabloids for West London, and shared a common website with it.
There were previously three other titles in the series:
- Acton & Greenford Leader
- Northolt Leader
- Southall Leader
However, these were subsequently amalgamated into a single Greenford, Northolt & Southall Leader.
Both came out on Fridays.
The Leader series was incorporated into the Gazette series – which became part-paid, part-freesheet – in late 2011.
