Yet another lads’ mag seems to have woken up to the fact that it’s not the 1990s any more and has called it a day, as Front magazine is reported to have ceased publishing.

Front has been through a succession of ever more obscure owners since its launch in 1998 and was selling fewer than 30,000 copies in the last lot of ABCs.

It’s not a matter of if FHM, Zoo and Nuts will close, just when.
