Forthcoming cover price increases on several Newsquest’s London newspapers will be accompanied with pro rata margin increases, the publisher has confirmed.

From next month the price of the Newham Recorder, Romford Recorder, Romford Recorder (Brentwood edition), Ilford Recorder, East London Advertiser, Islington Gazette and Hackney Gazette will rise to £1.10, while the Barking and Dagenham Post will cost 95p.

These price increases will come into effect between November 2 and November 4.

In a letter to retailers, Newsquest South East – London and Essex retail brand manager Matt Cartwright said the increases were unavoidable because “recent changes in the global market have left us facing unprecedented increases in cost across the board, including energy, transport, and raw material. All of these are beyond our control. Therefore, we have taken the difficult decision to increase the cover price of several titles in the London – Essex region.”

He thanked retailers for their “considerable hard work and continued support of our newspaper titles across the past few years. Our local newspaper brands have never been more important, providing local communities with trusted news.”
