Primrose Hill journalist Andrew Marr has reacted to news that The Independent is to stop printing.
It was announced today that the paper will go online only.
Mr Marr, who edited The Independent between 1996 and 1998, wrote on Twitter: “But one Indy thought: those who celebrate death of a paper like folk wanting fewer parks - more is always better.”
He had earlier responded to journalist Robert Peston, who described it as an important paper “in its day”.
Mr Marr tweeted: “Whaat? Noooo.... It’s getting better by the day. Rentoul, Cockburn, Fisk, Dejevsky, Macrae, Rajan essential daily!!”
