It was launched in April 2011 by publishers Archant London (a division of the Norwich-based Archant media group) as a replacement for the 145-year-old Stratford & Newham Express (which, according to its masthead, it incorporated). It was a slip edition of the paid-for Newham Recorder; the editorial offices were in Archant London’s Ilford headquarters.
It came out on Wednesdays. Archived free e-editions can still be found online by searching.
It ceased publication in November 2012.
