Statement from Johnston Press over newspaper closures

Johnston Press have issued a statement following the news that two of their East Yorkshire weekly papers are to close from September.

Earlier this year we announced a review of our portfolio, which looked to ensure our titles are serving their communities effectively and profitably. Making sure our newsrooms are properly structured in order to maintain and grow audiences has also been a key priority as we continue to transform the business whilst managing commercial challenges.

This means that changes will be made to the portfolio. On this occasion the changes affect the Beverley Guardian, the Malton & Pickering Mercury and the Driffield Times & Post. There will be no job losses as a result.

Hull food firm 'welcomes weak pound'

Jonathan Willis

Local Live

Hull food producer Cranswick has said the plunge in the value of the pound will "cement the rapid growth of its export business" and could put more home-grown pork on British dinner plates.

The sausage-maker said sterling's weakness following the Brexit vote was making the cost of British pork more competitive internationally and cheaper for UK retailers.

British pig meat had been 10p  per kilo more expensive than the average EU price, but since the Brexit vote it has become 10-15p cheaper.
