Weekly answers readers’ questions in new feature

Ask The MercuryA weekly newspaper has launched a new feature answering questions suggested by readers.

The Great Yarmouth Mercury’s ‘Ask The Mercury’ initiative allows readers to pose the queries that “matter most to them”.

The Mercury’s journalists then take the questions forward to the relevant authorities.

Initial questions answered for the launch feature included ‘When will a Primark open in Great Yarmouth?’ and ‘Will our MP (Brandon Lewis) be at the light switch on this year?’

In a message to readers, Mercury community editor Anthony Carroll said: “We know we have a responsibility here at The Mercury to ask the questions that matter.

“But we don’t have all the questions – that’s where our readers come in.

“We will strive to get to the bottom of your queries and will contact the relevant authorities to provide straightforward answers.

“We won’t get answers to everything, but hopefully we can resolve some burning issues.”
