Christine Block of Woodbridge, Suffolk, says she bought the same day's Independent at Oslo Central Station at lunchtime: 'We were impressed.' Clodagh Wilkinson of London recommends the Prince kiosk in Copenhagen's Town Hall square for a same-day copy. Kathryn Chinn of Munich gets her same-day copy of the paper before lunchtime in the Munich suburb of Schwabing: 'One wonders if one would be able to find a same- day copy of the Suddeutsche Zeitung in a newsagent in a suburb of Birmingham.' (We can't comment on suburban Birmingham, but Italian sports fans in London are well served: Fags and Mags in Golden Lane, EC1, offers a same-day La Gazzetta dello Sport from 8am.)
Mr A C Preston of Stockport visited the newspaper stall near the Star Ferry in Hong Kong and discovered not only a copy of the Independent ('priced at pounds 2 sterling') but also a copy of the Manchester Evening News.
A nomination for the most expensive copy of the Independent to be bought abroad comes from Philip Towell of Boston, Lincolnshire: 'The Hotel Preboltiskaya in Moscow is selling the Independent for pounds 6, which is stretching our loyalty a bit]'Reuse content
