Dickens birthday promoted from birth notices to front page 200 years on for The News, Portsmouth

The News in Portsmouth has a nice front page today – even if the story is 200 years old.

Some 200 years agoo today, Charles Dickens was born in the heart of Portsmouth – and the Johnston Press-owned daily has tracked down his original birth notice.

The News has also launched a year-long campaign called “Read All About It” to promote literacy in schools.
