Newspaper distribution limited

Newspaper distribution throughout the island has been restricted due to fuel shortages.

It is reported that some outstation areas have not received newspapers over several days.

Once the newspapers are printed, they are distributed directly by the company's transport services to the suburbs, including Colombo, and from there to the outlying areas by private distributors.

The lorries used for this purpose have found it difficult to refuel and today it has come to a complete standstill.

Newspaper distributors have warned that if the situation continues, there is a risk of a complete shutdown of newspaper distribution from next week.
