Mike Richards, who worked at an advertising agency that bought ad space from The Independent, talks about how the 1987 crash impacted budgets for financial clients, depriving the paper of a key source of revenue. He goes on to talk about how changes in the financial world made advertising in The Independent, which catered to a younger audience, less and less relevant.
