Britain's longest-running comic, the Dandy, could be facing closure after seventy-five years.

Iconic cartoon characters like Desperate Dan once helped sell two million copies a week, but circulation has now fallen to just a few thousand.

The comic, which is published in Dundee, has struggled in the face of competition from TV, video games and the internet.
