According to the Independent, former News of the World chief features writer Jane Atkinson has been found a job at The Sun as has former political editor for the paper Dave Wooding. Other former NoW staffers said to be targeted for Sun roles include Stephen Moyes, Daniel Jones and Matthew Drake – The Independent reports.
Former deputy editor of the News of the World Victorian Newton has already been given a job in charge of the Saturday edition of The Sun.
