GMG cuts 95 jobs in Surrey and Berkshire newspapers

Surrey and Berkshire Media, part of Guardian Media Group's regional division, is to axe up to 95 jobs as it shuts two of its weekly newspapers, closes its four district offices and shifts its flagship title, the Reading Evening Post, from a five-day to a twice-weekly publication.

Staff on the titles were today told about the planned cuts in a series of meetings with GMG Regional Media's chief executive, Mark Dodson.

The weekly titles to close are the Esher News & Mail and the Aldershot Mail.
