The Sun on Sunday to raise price

The Sun on Sunday has announced a 10p price rise effective from this weekend, taking the price up to 70p.

Hike: The price of the Sunday tabloid will rise to 70p

The move follows price rises at tabloid rivals the Sunday Mirror and Sunday People but will leave a 40p price difference between the two.

The Sun on Sunday cost 50p when it was launched in February last year to replace the News of the World, which was closed by Rupert Murdoch in 2011 after the phone hacking scandal emerged.

Meanwhile, the Mirror papers are set to unveil a revamped look at the weekend after the Sun on Sunday’s brand refresh last weekend.
