REVIEW OF THE YEAR: The most viewed web stories

Website.
Website.

Here we have compiled a list of the most viewed website stories for each of the last 12 months.

It is hard to get away from the fact that when looking at the most viewed stories in the last 12 months many are desperately sad.

But this is does not mean the whole year has been full of doom and gloom, or that we only publish ‘bad’ news stories.

It is worth noting that the most views tend to come from ‘breaking’ events and often by their very nature they are sad incidents, such as road traffic incidents and disasters. There is no better example of this then the devastating fire at the Southview Leisure Complex which topped the most viewed stories for two months - making the stories concerning this event the most viewed of the year.
