Jobs to go at Stratford Herald


Family-owned Midlands newspaper, the Stratford Herald, is to drop three of its ten journalists, according to reports.

Editor Chris Towner told Holdthefrontpage: “Like everybody else we’re having a rough time and it doesn’t look like it’s getting any better. We thought we could weather the storm as we have done in previous recessions but this one has proved deeper, darker and more protracted.”

According to the report, the cuts are unlikely to affect its reporting team, with the posts under threat expected to be news editor, sub-editor and one of the paper’s two photographers.
