Got a News Supply Problem? Why not Tweet?

Late delivered newspapers continue to be of significant concern to members and, sadly, instances are reported somewhere in the UK virtually every day.

The NFRN holds regular talks with both news wholesalers and publishers at a senior level where we share examples of poor service levels and discuss ways these can be tackled. To heighten awareness, we are now making it possible for you to share your concerns and explain the impact that late or missing supplies have on your business directly with publishers and wholesalers via Twitter.

You can do this by tweeting our new twitter handle @News_Complaints and using the hashtag #NewsComplaints. Publishers and news wholesalers have committed to following these and to taking action at the earliest opportunity.

Remember, though, you only have 140 characters to use in your tweet.

Twitter is a forum so please do not forget to report your issues to NFRN Connect on 0800 121 6376 * or email
