Trinity Mirror to cut 75 jobs
Trinity Mirror is to lay off nearly 20 per cent of its national newspaper journalists as it merges the editorial teams of the Daily Mirror, the Sunday Mirror and The People.
News of the 75 job losses is the latest in a long series of cuts in the sector, which is suffering from reduced circulation and a decline in advertising revenues.
Telegraph Media Group, publishers of the Daily Telegraph, made 30 redundancies this week. The cuts come as Fleet Street faces questions over its practices at Lord Justice Leveson's public inquiry into media standards, a hearing prompted by the phone-hacking scandal at News International's News of the World.
The cuts at Trinity Mirror come in spite of the closure of the News of the World in July which delivered significant increases in circulation and advertising revenues to the Sunday Mirror and The People, its two main rivals.
