Lightning strikes at Gazette

We apologise for the late delivery of the Gazette this week due to a lightning strike at our Barnstaple office on Monday lunchtime.

A flash of lightning during the storm blew out a vital component in our computer systems and this cost us several hours of production time.

We therefore had to book a later time slot on the printing press which means that the majority of papers will be delivered tomorrow (Thursday)

In the meantime, you can check out this week’s e-edition by following the link from the home page.
