Editors across Johnston Press newspapers in the South Midlands could be axed as part of a "newsroom of the future" shake-up.
Holdthefrontpage reports today that Northampton Chronicle and Echo editor David Summers is to oversee titles across the region.
Trinity Mirror’s pre-tax profits grew by 1 per cent to £102.3m in 2014, despite revenue falling 4.1 per cent to £636.3m during the year.
The publisher set aside £12m for legal costs associated with “historic legal issues”, including phone-hacking, last year, and it said today there is “present uncertainty” about how much this could cost in the future.
According to the publisher’s annual results announcement today, it made £15m in structural cost savings during 2014 - £5m ahead of its target. A further £10m of cost savings are targeted this year.
A hearing to decide the amount of compensation to be awarded in civil phone-hacking claims brought against Mirror Group Newspapers (MGN) is due to start at the High Court today.
Eight representative cases, none of which have settled, will be considered by Mr Justice Mann in London.
They concern TV executive Alan Yentob, actress Sadie Frost, ex-footballer Paul Gascoigne, soap stars Lucy Taggart, Shane Richie and Shobna Gulati, flight attendant Lauren Alcorn and TV producer Robert Ashworth.
Telegraph group editor Chris Evans has invited his journalists to contribute to new guidelines on the relationship between editorial and commercial.
The move follows the resignation earlier this month of chief political commentator Peter Oborne who claimed the paper had allowed commercial concerns to mute its coverage of the HSBC Swiss tax avoidance scandal.
