Floods delay papers from reaching our readers

UPDATE:

TRUCKS delivering The Northern Star have managed to get through the flooded highway and papers should have arrived at outlets before midday.

Obviously newsagents in flood affected areas won't be able to open but they should be available at newsagents and other outlets outside the flood zone very soon.

The Saturday edition of The Northern Star contains nine pages of flood coverage.

Ex-tropical Cyclone Debbie also delayed The Tweed Daily News, Daily Examiner and Coffs Coast Advocate from getting to communities in Northern New South Wales.

The closure of the Pacific Hwy at Chinderah means communities in Tweed, Lismore, Grafton and Coffs Harbour will have to wait for their newspapers as it appears impossible to freight them in.

Northern New South Wales Regional General Manager Steve Bowden said all the papers for these communities are currently stuck on trucks at Chinderah. 

"We will be doing everything possible to get our print products out, once the road is opened," he said.

Mr Bowden said the situation was regrettable but teams had worked right through the night making every effort to ensure the company's print products reached the impacted areas.

"At a time like this our people are every bit as passionate as our community about ensuring we tell your stories."
