Sister dailies hit newsstands late after print plant power failure

A power failure meant delivery of two sister dailies was delayed on Friday.

The problem affected Barrow-in-Furness daily The Mail and the West edition of the Carlisle-based News & Star.

Both of the titles have been printed at Newsquest’s Glasgow plant since the closure of the former CN Group Carlisle plant earlier this year.

The News & Star and The Mail apologised for any inconvenience caused to readers.

“The edition is now being delivered into our usual outlets.

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
