See 3.4.9 Newspaper articles of OSCOLA for full details on how to cite newspaper articles, including how to cite a newspaper article you have read from the printed version of a newspaper.

This example shows how to cite a a newspaper article you have read from the online version of a newspaper. In this example we use the following newspaper article: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2021/mar/21/just-what-will-it-take-to-get-our-judges-to-see-sense-on-violence-against-women?CMP=Share_iOSApp_Other

As with all online resources you may need to look around the page to retrieve all the details you need to populate your reference / citation both for the footnote and bibliography. The pattern you should use for newspaper articles is Author, 'Article title' Newspaper title (Place of publication, date of article) < link > accessed date month year. Note the newspaper title is in italics and the the date of the article should be in the standard date format for OSCOLA which is date month year.

The above article would be cited as follows:

Footnote:

Catherine Bennett, ‘Just what will it take to get our judges to see sense on violence against women?’ The Guardian (London, 21 March 2021) <https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2021/mar/21/just-what-will-it-take-to-get-our-judges-to-see-sense-on-violence-against-women?CMP=Share_iOSApp_Other> accessed 22 March 2021.
