First weekly Birmingham Post out

The first weekly edition of the Birmingham Post has been published.

The Trinity-Mirror owned business newspaper published its final daily version on Friday after 150 years of publishing every Monday to Saturday.

The newspaper's sister publication, the Birmingham Mail, will become an overnight paper in the new year.

About 80 jobs, half of which are in editorial, have been lost in the move. Trinity Mirror said it hoped most would be through voluntary redundancies.

The company said earlier this year the changes were the result of a review which was needed to address the possibility the business could lose up to £6m next year.
