All about the United Kingdom’s national, regional and local press

Prescot News (defunct)

The Prescot News was a monthly freesheet tabloid newspaper delivered to homes in the town of Prescot in the Merseyside Metropolitan Borough of Knowsley as a supplementary to the Prescot & Knowsley Reporter.

It was launched in January 2006 as a “vital community forum”. Like its parent title, it was published by Wigan-based Lancashire Publications, a branch of nationwide publishers of regional newspapers Johnston Press. It shared the St Helens Reporter’s editorial offices and website.
