I picked up tonight's copy of the Lite, quite by chance, from a seat in Holborn underground station. It was looking sad and abandoned, so I picked it up. I've not read the Lite for about a week, this mainly being due to my discovery of dooyoo. Since that fateful day my tube journeys have been mostly taken up by writing. For some unknown reason I've found that on the tube, I can write. Nowhere else, just on the tube. Why such horrific conditions should work for me, I have no idea. Anyway, my sorry little Lite was waiting. I picked it up. Had a little scan. It was warm and familiar. I squeezed myself onto the already heaving tube and attempted to do that ...

Back in the day, The Metro used to be the only free paper around for commuters into London until about 2 years ago (August 2006) when the London Lite was born. This has now become my favourite commuter paper. The London Lite is the sister paper of The Metro, both owned by Associated Newspapers, the same media group that owns the Daily Mail. The London Lite is an afternoon/evening free paper that most people get on their commute home. Like the Metro it can be found outside most tube stations and high commuter areas in London.

A few years ago there were no free newspapers in London. One would buy a copy of the evening standard for around 40p. However recently in London several free newspapers are distrubuted. Anyone who walks down the streets of Central London will see people dressed in London Lite t-shirts waving newspapers in front of anyone who passes by. In areas with high traffic such as Oxford Street this can be a problem. Streets are already over capacity, the last thing needed is three people blocking a busy street handing out newspapers. On to the newspaper itself, London Lite is free but the content doesn't compare to that of a newspaper that one pays for. The style ... Read the complete review

Hey this is cool, I pick this free paper up everyday in London on my way back home. There are a few people handing them out so it doesn't matter which way a walk I always manage to pick one up. My husband reads it more than me but on the odd occasion that I have read it, its been great. There is a good mix of news, sport and celebrity gossip. There is a really funny text column too that makes good reading. The sports pages are cool as they cover all the London clubs and as my other half supports Arsenal he always asks if I've picked him up a paper. All in all this paper is great as a free daily. I love the fact the ink doesn't come off on your hands and that for .. Read the complete review
