Robert Goodwill says he will certainly be looking into subscribing to our titles.

"At times like these, particularly when much of the information that seems to be flying around the internet is false or in some cases designed to be misleading, a trusted source of local news like local newspapers is vital,” he said.

As reported last week, our journalism is reaching more people across the UK than ever before during this time of emergency, and we are working hard from our homes to keep publishing the most important news and information.
