A regional daily is understood to have been left without a picture desk after both its picture editor and his deputy left the title.
The picture editor at the Manchester Evening News is understood to have left the newspaper last month and his work is now expected to be taken on by the newsdesk.
The move follows the departure of the title’s deputy picture editor a number of months ago.
A source told HTFP that the title had now been left without a picture desk and that the news desk would be carrying out its work, which includes managing the paper’s photographers.
It is not known whether the departure of the picture editor was through voluntary or compulsory redundancy.
Trinity Mirror, which owns the MEN, declined to comment.
