SIR - The open letter to advertisers is aptly dated April 1.

Out of 40 pages, 22 are dedicated to adverts, history, family/classified, TV and sport.

Very little news for 72p.

Next move will be £1 without any!

Editor’s comment:

We know that your Telegraph & Argus has a different look at the moment.

The coronavirus crisis has seen the wholesale cancellation of public events and sports fixtures.

Despite this we have not reduced the number of pages or stories. Wednesday’s paper had the same number of news pages as always.

Our arts coverage has been partly replaced by quizzes to keep people entertained while they self-isolate and we have increased the number of features to give you more to read.

We have also maintained sport coverage - unlike many other newspapers.

Our reporters are working longer hours - many of them 12-hour days - to bring people in Bradford accurate news. We have even extended our reporting hours to bring you the news as it happens, despite the squeeze on advertising budgets caused by the crisis.

We hope the majority of our readers will understand and continue to support us by purchasing the paper or taking out a digital subscription.
