The local weekly newspaper the Penarth Times failed to arrive in local newsagents’ shops this morning – the second time the normal Thursday publication of the paper has been disrupted.
One local newsagent said today no advance notice had been given to shops that the Penarth Times would not be delivered this morning and the Newport based publishers Newsquest – had not been in touch with them.
It’s the second time in recent weeks the Penarth Times has failed to be issued on its due publication day.The paper last failed to appear on March 9th because of what were then said to be printing problems.
Sources within the South Wales Argus in Newport – where the paper is edited and printed – said that as far as was known, today’s edition opf the Penarth Times had come off the presses on schedule – but for some reason the 4,000 printed copies which are normally dispatched to Penarth had failed to arrive.
Local newsagents have said they’ve been given to understand that today’s paper will be on sale tomorrow .
