British national newspapers are of two basic types, TABLOIDS and BROADSHEETS. Tabloids have the largest circulation of all the national newspapers in the United Kingdom. A tabloid’s page is small (being approximately one-half the page size of a standard newspaper). They are characterised by outlandish, sensationalist headlines. Some broadsheets have now become tabloids, like The Times and The Independent. The Guardian is meant to follow soon.
There are a number of newspapers which are available over the entire nation and deal almost exclusively with news of national interest. These are all morning papers and are extensively read (see the list above). Local newspapers are usually evening papers (for example, “Manchester Evening News) and deal with local events. They seldom have much national news. Typically one will get two or more newspapers a day in England.
‘Fleet street’ is a phrase used to refer collectively to the national newspapers of England. As in, "FLEET STREET today reported that Prime Minister Tony Blair ...". Fleet Street in London is where all the national newspaper offices used to be.
