The statement from Northcliffe Media said: “A review of how we operate the news and picture departments at The Herald and Western Morning News has been completed. It has been decided each title will merge these functions within their respective newsrooms.
A separate review of South West Media Group’s commercial editorial department has taken place to reflect last year’s change from daily to weekly publication in Torquay and Exeter. It has been decided commercial editorial activity will now be organised individually by each title.
As a result of these changes eight posts have been made redundant – six in the former regional photographic department and two in the commercial editorial department. A further three people – one from photographic and two from commercial editorial - have decided to leave the business.”
