Johnston Press eyes digital recovery

Press Association

Johnston Press blamed the Olympics for a slide in recent advertising sales but said a major digital push should start to pay off by the end of the year.

The company, which owns nearly 250 titles including The Scotsman and Yorkshire Post, said sales fell by 14.7% in the six weeks since the start of July after London 2012 hit advertising not directly related to the event.
