Nick Reddan's newspaper extracts
« on: Sunday 05 September 21 18:22 BST (UK) »
A useful source (in spite of a fair number of mistranscribed entries).
But I can't find an index to the code letters use to designate the newspapers.
Can anyone tell me what are LEP-CS and WMT J  ?

I see the latest update to the web site was in early 2019,
so there may be no point in trying to contact Nick.

Thanks to you both.

It seems I was looking at an old site, which has the information in a different format.
