The Metro is a free daily paper available at most of the major cities around the UK and can be picked up at numerous locations, usually based around public transport. The paper is available Mon - Fri, excluding all the usual bank holidays. The Metro is an easy to read newspaper, that is probably most similar to the red top tabloids, however you do not get quite as much gossip, self help columns and celebrity photo's (thankfully), as you would expect in the usual tabloid papers. The first 15 or so pages of the paper are taken up by the usual current affairs stories that you would expect in any newspaper. The stories tend to be quite brief and are ... Read the complete review

Metro.co.uk is the website version of the metro newspaper which can be picked up each day from train and tube stations. It is essentially a news service website, but far more light-hearted than the likes of bbc.co.uk and other similar sites. In addition to covering the mainstream / important news stories that have a major impact on world events they also include reports on more bizarre and obscure events, which are enjoyable and humorous to read. Examples include the burglar who fell asleep whilst inside a house he was burgling only to be awoken by police and strange crop circles from around the globe. The website is very user friendly and is made more ... Read the complete review

It was the news that the London Evening Standard was going to be given away for free, the newspapers that is, not the company, although the current owner - Alexander Lebedev - did only pay a pound for it, that prompted me to write this review. I remember years ago that my father used to bring home the Standard every evening and catch up on the events of the day before the days when we had a telly. Everything he needed to know, he reckoned, he could learn from the Standard. I'm not sure about that but what is certain is that it packed a lot of concise information into a compact form. Years later, when I was still working I used to spend a lot of time with ... Read the complete review

As an online newspaper this is reasonably good it is based on the free daily newspaper, The Metro. Site Design: The site looks busy and does well to combine the main stories of the day with gossip, entertainment, irreverence and adverts relevant to the area you live in. There is good use of headers and footers, banners and the photographs are of very good quality. There are links to a number of other areas of the site and these are easy to find and accessible. Content: This would be my biggest criticism of the site, the stories are short and concise and its sometimes difficult to get beyond the story. With other papers you ... Read the complete review

The metro newspaper is much like the website and vice versa, advertisements cover the front page, not news stories. Companies can actually buy the entire front page to themselves if they so choose and, if you go to the metro website right now, the entire background of the page is covered in an advertisement. However, this is a free paper that circulates almost 2 million everyday and gets so many website hits it tops google instant and page searches. The price you pay for the paper (nothing) means you need ads, so i'm not complaining, i think its a fantastic idea in fact! Although i can't see the Telegraph catching on to this idea somehow... The website is well ... Read the complete review
