About London Evening Standard
The London Evening Standard is London's only free quality newspaper, currently reaching over 1.7 million readers each day. From mid-January, the number of copies printed was increased from 700,000 towards a target of 900,000 copies, responding to the demands from readers who live or work outside central London to be able to get a copy every night. Online, the site reports 4.55 million unique users (Dec ABCes) and has recently launched a completely free tablet and smartphone App. Award-winning campaigns including The Dispossessed, Get London Reading, a Ladder for London and Escaping the Gangs have broken new ground for newspapers and raised millions of pounds for the capital's most vulnerable people. The London Evening Standard was bought by Evgeny Lebedev in January 2009 and is edited by Sarah Sands.
