David Sundman forwarded the following article from BBC news. Another print newspaper bites the dust. -EditorMayor Boris Johnson has scrapped the Londoner newspaper in a move his office claims will save £2.9m. The Londoner, a freesheet, was distributed to three million homes across the city.
Up to £1m of the saving will be used to fund the planting of 10,000 new trees in London's most deprived areas, says Mr Johnson. The mayor aims to have all the new trees planted by the start of the 2012 Olympic Games.
