queue in Burnham to buy final edition of News Of The World
queue formed outside a Burnham-On-Sea newsagent at 5am on Sunday
morning (July 10th) as residents snapped up collectable copies
of the final edition of the News Of The World.
Morris, who runs Hurleys Newsagents on Burnham High Street, told
Burnham-On-Sea.com: "I was surprised that people were actually
waiting outside the shop at 5am to get copies of the News Of The
10.30am I had completely sold all 159 copies. If we'd had another
50 copies I think those would have gone too."
final issue of such a well-known newspaper is undoubtedly collectible,
but given the past week's disgraceful revelations I was surprised
that so many people wanted to buy it."
newsagents in Burnham and Highbridge also told Burnham-On-Sea.com
they had quickly sold out of the paper, which was published for
the final time on Sunday amid a phone hacking scandal.
