    Thank you for your review.

    We do apologise for this.

    As you have ordered a newspaper only, the newspapers are sent out in a padded envelope and due to the size of the newspapers, they do have to be slightly folded. This should not damage the newspaper in anyway.

    As a gesture, we have applied a 10% discount to your order, which has been refunded to you. We hope will help towards rectify your dissatisfaction.

    Please do accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused. If you require any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us on 03300669700 or email us at info@historic-newspapers.co.uk

    Kind Regards,
    The Historic Newspapers Team
