Local World Trinity Mirror

Trinity Mirror is merging the news teams at two regional titles, with the loss of up to eight editorial jobs.

The bi-weekly Exeter Express & Echo and the Tiverton-based Mid Devon Gazette are among 83 print titles purchased by Trinity Mirror from Local World in November in a deal which valued the business at £220m..

It blames the job losses on “changing commercial and editorial market conditions”.

Express & Echo editor Jon-Paul Hedge left the company in January and both titles are now edited by Patrick Phelvin.
