I'm amazed The Mercury print edition is still available. It can only be a matter of time.

Circulation now down to an average 7301. Sales have dropped 60% in 5 years, no doubt due to the fact that most of the news isn't local any more.

Come on, you're being unfair, Folkestone is only 90 miles away, you could drive there in just under 2 hours! :lol:
