Aussie paper prints extra pages to help with coronavirus toilet paper shortage

Darwin-based NT News printed a special edition with some extra blank pages on Thursday to be cut out and used as toilet paper after coronavirus panic-buying sparked a shortage in Australia.’Run out of loo paper? The NT News cares,’ the front page reads. ’That’s why we’ve printed an eight-page special liftout inside, complete with handy cut lines, for you to use in an emergency.’
