Click to follow
Andrew Neil, former editor of the Sunday Times, has taken over the reins of the European newspaper.

In January, 47-year-old Mr Neil became editor-in-chief of European Press Holdings, the company which owns and publishes the European, Scotsman, Scotland on Sunday and the Edinburgh Evening News.

Mr Neil has assumed day-to-day control of the European from next week's issue following the departure of the editor, Charles Garside, who has left the company to pursue other interests. He has said in the past he would like to see the weekly pan-European newspaper become like the Economist `with glamour'.
