Free access to British newspapers

The following was posted as an addendum to the weekly notice of updates from Findmypast.

“We are deeply saddened this week by the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and extend our deepest sympathies to the royal household at this time. We are commemorating her reign by allowing the public to explore her life and reign through our newspaper archives, entirely free of cost, from Friday 16 September at 10am to Tuesday 20 September at 10am. Discover her marvelous life in pictures through our blog, or take the opportunity to dive into the archives yourself, and see what wonderful stories you can find.”

It’s unclear whether this access is through the newspaper section on Findmypast, through the British Newspaper Archive, or both, and whether there are any limitation on searching. Explore and enjoy.
