The new site is designed to be scalable across desktop and mobile devices, with all Flash components removed so that interactive puzzles can now be played online.

Puzzles have always been a key part of the Telegraph offering. The cryptic crossword is considered one of the most prestigious, popular and well-known crosswords in the world, says The Telegraph.

Telegraph puzzles has a fascinating history. Telegraph crosswords were used to recruit code-breakers for Bletchley Park during the Second World War, and were the cause of a War Office investigation when the code-names of D-Day landing sites were used as answers in the crossword shortly before Operation Overlord.

The Telegraph’s paid-for puzzles website offers a comprehensive and varied range of online teasers. The Telegraph Puzzles site will be open to all Puzzles subscribers, but registered users will have access to one free randomly selected puzzle per day.

Chris Lancaster, Puzzles Editor, The Telegraph said: “We are delighted to be able to share the new Telegraph Puzzles website after several months of dedicated work. Telegraph puzzles are known the world over for the likes of the famous Bletchley Park and D-Day landing puzzles, but this new site represents a significant step into the future.”
