A number of regional, weekly titles owned by Johnston Press are introducing paywalls on their websites in a pilot scheme starting next week.

The Worksop Guardian, Ripley & Heanor News, Northumberland Gazette, Whitby Gazette (all in England), and the Southern Reporter and Carrick Gazette (in Scotland) will restrict access to non-subscribers, in an attempt to monetise online content.

The papers will allow access to the homepage of each paper, but stories away from the main page will require a subscription of £5 for a three month trial. Johnston Press say they will review whether to extend the scheme past this date and to other sites depending on the pilot’s success.
