Trinity sheds 82 newspaper jobs

Eighty-two jobs are to be lost and a daily newspaper will be printed weekly, Trinity Mirror Midlands has announced.

The Birmingham Post will be relaunched as a weekly business newspaper with its sister daily paper, the Birmingham Mail, moving to overnight production.

A new templating process means jobs at Fort Dunlop, where the Mail, Post, Sunday Mercury and Coventry Telegraph are printed, are at risk.

Forty editorial roles and 42 roles in other departments will go.

The changes are the result of a review begun in the summer to address a forecast £6m loss affecting the business next year.

Managing director John Griffith said as many redundancies as possible would be sought through voluntary means.
