Newspapers continue to face "significant problems" from digital news competition according to Claire Enders, of media consultancy Enders Analysis.

Speaking to Radio 4's Today programmes, Enders said more than one mainstream UK newspaper will cease to be printed on paper within five years.

Buzasi said that a digital first strategy may offer newspapers "short term pain for long term gain".
