09.30 – Father Brian reports that the Herculis is now available, but at what price?
10.45 – Earlier today, the Giant GK was giving the answers and the setters phone number, which is why I temporarily suppressed the first two comments below and contacted the Telegraph. All is now well, and the puzzle is online The link has reverted back to the previous week’s puzzle (thanks Rollo – I didn’t check properly) which is where we started and Sunday’s Quick crossword is still on the missing list!
11.35 – The missing Quick crossword is now available. I have received an email from the Puzzles Editor saying that he will be investigating how these problems can be minimised. Let’s hope he is successful – I would be more than happy to stop publishing these bulletins!
12.55 – All quiet on the western front!! All of the weekend problems now seem to be resolved. Additionally, the Codewords (Nos 1234 & 1237) reported in earlier editions have certainly been changed, but I have not as yet had time to check them.
What is going on? Today the Herculis No 12253 is not yet available online. The other two previously reported are still missing, presumed dead!
