Thanks for all your comments on this subject. I’m afraid that I haven’t been involved with these changes in any way, but I have made the relevant team aware of this thread. The changes are only affecting around 6-7 per cent of subscribers (those on the the web pack (£2 per week), the Sunday digital pack (£2 per week) or the weekend digital pack (£3 per week)), so many of you will not be affected. If you are affected and have concerns or queries about the changes, I would recommend phoning the Customer Services team on 0800 009 4701.
