Scotland’s new newspaper The National, is to continue indefinitely, after a hugely-successful five-day trial.

The National Editor Richard Walker said: “Now that we have passed this initial test period, we have exciting plans for developing The National into a mainstay of the Scottish media landscape.”

The paper is targeted at the 1.6 million Scots who voted for Scottish independence in the recent Referendum.

The National is produced in Glasgow by the Herald & Times Group.

Managing Director Tim Blott said: “We are delighted with its early success and will continue to produce it as long as there is a market for it.”
