Question British Newspapers

Hi, does anyone know of any UK based newspapers which are available in an electronic form and could be reasonably viewed on an eInk ebook reader? I don't mean a collection of the stories taken from the respective website but an electronic copy of the full paper.
I haven't bought (or even decided upon) a device yet, so the format isn't too important as I can purchase an appropriate reader.

Any ideas gratefully received,

Dave

Pressdisplay will export to the DR1000, any of the UK Newspapers, but at present, it requires the Windows version. The Mac version doesn't allow the exprot as yet.

The Guardian 24 allows saving of a pdf version which you can display, though a 6" screen may be a bit small.

Otherwise, Calibre has a reasonable stab at collecting the News from a variety of UK Papers and can display on most e-readers.
