Story loading speed is inconsistent, some will load almost instantly, some after 15 to 20 seconds, others just don't open - this happens both on my mobile, and tablet whilst using WiFi from my router about 2 metres away (so it's not a signal strength issue). News reports and content is ok, some headline "news" is questionable, e.g "cafe reopens after being closed because of lockdown" - headline news?

Certain pages don't load - this is constant too. Most pages will but others just hang. Very odd and frustrating. Furthermore, you can't click on images to enlarge them which you can do in almost every other app I use... Very odd that this isn't allowed.

I'd like to have access to good quality journalism about my home city of Birmingham, but I haven't found that here. The stories say the same thing over and over again, and there's very little substance to the articles. There are so many adverts that you lose the flow. I only installed the app because I read that this would be better than reading online - I'm not so sure it is.
