Hundreds queue to buy Charlie Hebdo

Hundreds of people in London lined up outside newsagents to buy the latest edition of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. 

Some people arrived outside newsagents at midnight and waited overnight to get their copy. It is the first edition to be printed since the terrorist attacks at the Parisian offices of the magazine which left 10 staff members and two policemen dead. 

It is thought all copies of the magazine have sold out in the capital.

It is expected five million copies will sell worldwide. In fact, the run will is predicted to be so successful that it more copies will be printed. 

As it is now so difficult to buy the magazine, many people have taken to online auction sites to sell on their copies - sometimes for hundreds of pounds. However, London Live’s Luke Blackall, who joined Headline London to discuss the issue, says he thinks those who pay more will soon be disappointed as they may soon be able to pick up an edition for €3.
