Independent political editor Andy Grice is to leave his role after 17 years.
According to the newspaper, he will continue to write for the title.
Editor Amol Rajan tweeted this afternoon: "[The] Independent has been blessed with finest Political Editor in Fleet St for 17yrs. Andy Grice moving to a writing role. Can't thank him enough for phenomenal job. Endless scoops, totally fair, best sources. Delighted he'll still be writing for us.”
