No Sunday papers due to 'increasing cost of airfreight'

Wholesaler says publishers couldn't secure aircraft at an economic level

The increasing cost of airfreight means there won't be any newspapers on the Isle of Man today.

Wholesaler GE White says the newspaper publishers were unable to secure a chartered aircraft at 'an economic level'.

The papers normally arrive on the overnight sailing from Heysham, but the Manxman wasn't scheduled to sail last night for regular maintenance.

GE White has confirmed Sunday's papers will be distributed alongside Monday issues tomorrow.
