Trinity Mirror to cut Daily Post jobs in north Wales

Daily Post

Eight jobs at north Wales newspaper Daily Post are "at risk" as part of a restructure of staff.

One of those jobs is its only reporter based at the Senedd in Cardiff Bay.

But Trinity Mirror said six new roles would be created including a politics reporter based in north Wales.

A spokesman said the planned changes were to ensure the paper operated efficiently and the right resources were in place to "deliver news our audiences want, when they want it".

Martin Shipton, NUJ Trinity Mirror group chapel chairman, said: "We deplore these latest announcements, which confirm our fear that the group is moving away from journalism that challenges the locally powerful and holds to account public bodies."

He added: Diminishing quality news coverage is a risky strategy that endangers the very existence of journalism that adds value. We call on Trinity Mirror's senior management to consider very carefully the implications of what they are proposing."

Earlier this month Trinity Mirror announced a number of roles would close at its Swansea-based newspaper, South Wales Evening Post.
