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.
