Established in 1986 as an independent national morning newspaper published in London, it was controlled by Tony O’Reilly's Independent News & Media from 1997, and sold to Alexander Lebedev in 2010. It ceased to be produced in print in March 2016.Nicknamed the Indy, it began as a broadsheet newspaper, but changed to tabloid or "compact" format in 2003. Regarded as coming from the centre-left, on culture and politics, it tends to take a more pro-market stance on economic issues. It has not affiliated itself with any political party and features a range of views.
