Free access has gone frown
It will not let me view anymore of their articles. They are charging £52 a year or £4.99 a month subscriptions.
No doubt they will lose out on advertising revenue.

Still free, you get less ads and nags if you subscribe for £52 a year.

Well why won't they let me view any more articles?
Every article I viewed had a counter on it up to 40 as the limit. Now I can only view articles I have already read and not new ones.

You get 40 free articles then that's it frown

You must have really upset them, I have no counters just various nag screens that pop up but can still read the articles. I'm viewing with Chromium browser and "U-block origin" ad blocker.

Clear your cookies, if they are counting you they must be tracking you but may be done by IP address.

I'm fed up with companies that want you to pay to see the advertising that they get paid for.

I thought Wirral Globe (and Liverpool Echo) is just a news aggregation site with clickbait headlines. Liverpool Echo website even covers celebrity stuff from across the UK.

The Globe doesn't have many clickbait headlines but is low on content, whereas the Echo has loads of clickbait headlines but is also high in content.

I wouldn't agree it's high on content - drug dealers, Liverpool FC and 'trending from around the country'. It's as if the staff just gave up.
