A couple of months ago I mentioned the new internet-based phone system installed at the Evening Beast, remarking that it was sure to break down and we wouldn’t even be able to call IT for help.
How art mirrors life. I am told that Newsquest offfices on the Wirral and in Warrington lost their similar telephone system yesterday and were left unable to contact each other … on press day. Neither could readers ring in.
As my informant says: “We’d be inclined to post a note on our website with our mobile numbers, but unfortunately Newquest are too tight to provide them.”
I wonder if they’ve turned it off and turned it on again …
