Features editor loses job at Scottish & Universal Newspapers

A long-standing journalist working for Trinity Mirror's Scottish and Universal Newspapers has been made redundant due to the downturn in advertising.

Eileen McAudley, who was group features editor, leaves the company after 18 years.

A digital content editor will also be made redundant, along with eight other members of staff, mainly in the administration department.

McAudley primarily worked for the group's Lanarkshire titles: the Hamilton Advertiser, East Kilbride News, Wishaw Press, Aidrie and Coatbridge Advertiser and also wrote generic features for all S&UN titles.

A spokesman for S&UN said: "In light of the continuing downturn in advertising revenues, it has been necessary to review the structure of some departments, principally in the advertising, finance and administration functions.

"It is proposed that 10 roles will be made redundant, and we are in consultation with the individuals affected.

"Wherever possible, we will attempt to find alternative positions for those who wish to stay within the group."
