Cumbrian newspaper group appeals for donations

A Cumbrian newspaper group is appealing directly to its readers for donations to support its online service.

CN Group publishes daily and weekly newspapers in Cumbria, Northumberland and south west Scotland, including the News and Star and The Cumberland News.

On the News and Star website, the Assistant Editor pops up on a video to request a donation between £5 and £1,000.

It's not compulsory but they claim people are already making contributions.
