A 45 minute extension to newspaper publisher cut off times into wholesaler depots across England, Scotland, and Wales has been agreed for Saturday April 10 to enable extra copies to be printed to commemorate the death today of Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh.

Newspaper allocations have been increased to cope with the expected increase in demand, However, there will be no additional supplements to match the extra live news supplies.

Given the expected disruption over the weekend to newspaper deliveries and supplies, both Smiths News and Menzies Distribution are anticipating higher than usual numbers of telephone calls to their customer services departments.
