Site version set to "World" on desktop, even though I'm in the UK.

I've recently noticed that on my laptop/desktop, ANN is set to "World", with the only other regions being US & Canada, Australia & New Zealand, South-east Asia and a language change to French.
As far as I can tell, there's no UK/Ireland option any more on desktop, but if I check ANN on my mobile phone, it's automatically set to UK/Ireland.

Is there any way I can get UK/Ireland back for ANN on desktop, or has it been removed?

It's been removed temporarily. We apologize for the inconvenience. We're still covering news from the UK, but we do not have any content targeted towards the UK.

Oh no, that's fine! Do you have any idea when it should be coming back to desktop, then?

We need to fix a few GDPR things in the English version before we can target the UK again.

Can you explain why you need it?

The World Section includes everything from the UK version. Are you just annoyed by the extra news that doesn't interest you, or is there something I'm missing.

The last GDPR fix isn't currently scheduled, because we felt the world version served UK readers pretty well, but if there's something I'm missing, I can move it up the schedule.
