TMP era newspaper comic strip

I used to have numerous cuttings out of a UK newspaper (circa 1980) of a Star Trek comic strip based on the TMP era.

I don't suppose anyone here knows which paper published them?

Thanks.

The last UK-produced Trek comic came out in 1979 and was set during TOS. The only TMP-era comic strip ever published was the one from the Los Angeles Times Syndicate. Some UK paper must have picked up the strip at some point, but I don't know which one.
