NPA Council expells Express Newspapers

The Newspaper Publishers Association has thrown out Express Newspapers over non-payment of invoices dating back to 2006. The NPA Council made the decision to terminate the Northern & Shell-owned group’s membership on Friday.

The decision means that the group, which is led by chairman Richard Desmond, will no longer have access to the NPA services. The association was set up to “represent, protect and promote” the national newspaper industry.

The NPA says it has written to the group, which owns the Daily Express and the Daily Star, explaining the reasons for its decision.

The NPA’s membership also includes Associated Newspapers, Financial Times, Guardian Newspapers, Independent Newspapers, Trinity Mirror, News International and the Telegraph group.
