Newspapers' print tradition ends

Frontage of Bristol Evening Post
Editions of both papers are being brought into the city daily

Two Bristol newspapers will no longer be printed in the West after the firm which owns both publications moved its printing operation to cut costs.

Both the Bristol Evening Post and Western Daily Press (WDP) newspapers have been printed in the city.

Northcliffe Media has taken the decision to move to Oxfordshire.

Former deputy news editor of the WDP Steve Eggington said: "It's sad but inevitable. It's difficult to see what future there is for local papers."

Editions of both papers are now being brought into the region on a daily basis.
