DEAR readers, the Gibraltar Olive Press is currently held up after our van was stopped at the Spanish border.
Spanish customs officials stopped our delivery van, preventing our driver bringing today’s paper into Gibraltar.
We are currently in negotiations with Spain’s authorities and the Government of Gibraltar to try and resolve the issue.
Hopefully by five or six pm this evening today’s copy of the newspaper will be available for you to read.
Don’t forget, it you can’t wait for your fix you can read it online here https://issuu.com/theolivepress/docs/1-32_23403de1584874
Olive Press editor Jon Clarke said: “It is ridiculous that this should happen at an important time like this.
“We are trying to get this important edition to our readers, but after Brexit and the Gibraltar budget they choose this time to play these stupid games.
“We would like to remind them that until Article 50 is triggered, we are still part of the EU and that these kinds of hold-ups are far from helpful for our readers.”
We will bring you further updates as we get them.
