A senior newspaper executive has written to NFRN National President Linda Sood paying tribute to the efforts of NFRN members and their delivery staff after the Beast from the East wreaked havoc earlier this month.

In his letter to Mrs Sood, Mirror editor in chief Lloyd Embley wrote: “Can I please take this opportunity to thank all newsagents, NFRN members and HND staff in particular for the amazing effort shown during the appalling weather of a couple of weeks ago.

“Please forgive the late acknowledgement, but us journalists we sometimes forget what an outstanding contribution newsagents and newsboys and newsgirls make 364 days a year.”
