Hayley Cuthbertson, 31, has been appointed assistant news editor, having spent two years as crime reporter.
Cuthbertson, who is from Coventry, joined the Evening Telegraph in February 1999 as a trainee reporter, having completed an NCTJ course at Sutton Coldfield College. She attained the Trinity Mirror Certificate 18 months later, and was appointed crime reporter in June 2001.
A graduate of Liverpool University, Cuthbertson spent two years teaching English in Japan after completing her degree and taught for some time in the UK before enrolling on the NCTJ course.
