TIME ONLINE | News, backgrounds and debates


Dusseldorf (dpa) - A German toilet paper manufacturer has sent a huge load of toilet paper as a relief delivery to the Royal Buckingham Palace in London. The Düsseldorf-based company responded to PR reports on media reports of an impending Klopapierkrise by Brexit. The truck with 1440 wheels is already on the way and is expected to arrive tomorrow, said a company spokeswoman. According to British media reports, the United Kingdom is supposed to cover its above-average demand for toilet paper mainly through imports.
