A new national newspaper giving a Northern slant on national and international news stories will be launched on Monday, June 20.
24 - The North’s National is published by CN Group - the award-winning company behind Choose Cumbria - and will be distributed across an area spanning Preston to Lockerbie, and Hexham in the east to Workington in the west.
The tabloid will present a regional slant on major news stories and events alongside features, lifestyle, celebrity gossip and regionally-focused columns.
Miller Hogg, chief executive of CN Group, said: “24 will provide a northern take on the national headlines.
“We see our purpose as serving the communities in which we operate, and 24 will deliver the facts devoid of spin, to help readers formulate their own views on the UK’s biggest headlines.”
The newspaper will be edited by Mike Haworth, who has previously held senior editorial positions at the Daily Express and Sunday Express, and the Daily Star and Sunday Star.
The 40-page tabloid will be priced at 40p and published Monday to Friday.
