Pressure on pagination sees Times drop diary page

The Times has apparently dropped its daily diary column “People” in response to the drop in pagination as a result of the advertising downturn.

A source at the paper has told The Guardian: “There is a war in Afghanistam and a recession and the positive light-hearted column didn’t seem to fit. It is also the case that because of the advertising downturn there is less pagination and the paper could not really afford to lose that space.”

Diary editor Adam Sherwin is reportedly moving across to be a general news reporter.
