East Kilbride World (defunct)

The East Kilbride World was a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper distributed to homes in the South Lanarkshire New Town of East Kilbride near Hamilton.

It was launched in 1982 and published by Hamilton-based Scottish & Universal Newspapers (part of the UK-wide Trinity Mirror group, now Media Scotland) as a companion to SUN’s paid title for the area, the East Kilbride News weekly tabloid, from the same editorial offices in East Kilbride.

It had no website of its own; the link below is to the News’s website.

It came out on Fridays.

In August 2011 Scottish & Universal Newspapers announced that it was suspending publication of all its freesheet newspapers with effect from the week ending 9 September 2011.
