North Lanarkshire Extra (defunct)

The North Lanarkshire Extra was a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper distributed to homes in the towns of Motherwell, Wishaw, Bellshill and Viewpark, and other communities in North Lanarkshire.

It was published by Johnston (Falkirk) Ltd, part of the Johnston Press regional newspaper publishing group, from editorial offices in Motherwell. They took over the Lanarkshire Extra group from the Archant media group in early 2007.

The group had no website of its own; the link given below is to Johnston’s paid-for weekly tabloid for the area, the Motherwell Times.

There were two other newspapers in the group: the South Lanarkshire Extra and the Strathaven Extra. All came out on Thursdays.

The Lanarkshire Extra group ceased publication in 2011.
