Christchurch Mail publishes its final edition

Duncan Weich

The Christchurch Mail saw it’s final edition published last week. Its closure is just the start of a series of community papers shutting down around the country and moving online.

There are concerns it may be cutting off older people from their communities.

Duncan Weich looked into it.

The story was part of a programme broadcast on Plains 96.9 FM, Canterbury's community access radio station.
