Scotland's first daily newspaper to support independence from the United Kingdom will launch on Monday, reflecting surging nationalist support since Scots spurned independence two months ago, Reuters reported.
The Herald and Times group, part of the Newsquest publishing arm of U.S.-based firm Gannett, said it will produce a tabloid-style newspaper called The National in a week-long trial run.
Since Scots voted by 55-45 percent to preserve the United Kingdom in a Sept. 18 referendum, support has ballooned for the pro-independence Scottish National Party (SNP).
But only the weekly Sunday Herald, also part of the Herald and Times group, has a pro-independence editorial stance among Scotland's major newspapers. Its editor Richard Walker will oversee the production of The National.
