Web figures for GreenUn24 continue to rise, and Monday's Evening Star, which includes a 24-page Green'Un sports pull-out, has also seen copy increases.

Mike Bacon said: “Six months ago people thought the Green'Un in Suffolk was dead. But I knew that was never going to happen and with the hard-working and dedicated staff here in Ipswich, we have made GreenUn24 and the pull-out in the Evening Star a huge success.
