For local newspapers, try your local large library which may well have them on film. Local studies libraries usually have local papers on film.
National papers such as the Jewish World and Jewish Chronicle will be at most major libraries. If all else fails try the British Library (Newspaper Section). They require you to sign copyright forms and the administration costs are not cheap, but they do post the copies in cardboard tubes to prevent damage.
