UK hyperlocal site starts paper edition

A site that covers an East Yorkshire, UK locale is now turning out a print edition. HU17.net, which covers Beverley, has started a weekly print version. It’s a small print run – about 100 copies. Paul Smith, the publisher, tells The Guardian:

“Local shops have been very supportive with many signing up to advertising package that is realistic and very affordable, something that was certainly needed in the area.”

There was something of a dustup regarding Smith when a local paper ran an article saying Smith had designed porn websites. Smith admitted as much, but said that part of his life was behind him.
