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

Selby Star (defunct)

The Selby Star was a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper distributed to homes in and around the North Yorkshire town of Selby, extending out as far as Sherburn-in-Elmet to the west, Deighton to the north, Foggathorpe to the east and Barlow to the south.

It was founded in 1986 by York & County Press (now part of Newsquest (York)) from their offices in York. It had no website of its own; its web presence was via the website of Newsquest York’s daily newspaper, The Press.

It came out on Thursdays. It’s now merged with the York Star as the York and Selby Star.
