A second pair of Johnston Press-owned weeklies in Yorkshire have been merged into a single print edition.
In recent years both have existed as individual newspapers with several common pages.
An announcement by the Mirfield Reporter, shared on the MyMirfield Facebook page, reads: “Now we are combining the two titles into one strong local paper for the two towns.
“We will continue to bring you full coverage of local news, entertainment and sport from both towns and their surrounding villages. All your regular features and columns will continue to appear in the combined paper.
“This move will protect the tradition of valued local newspaper coverage, whilst recognising and reporting on the distinct lives and events in both Mirfield and Dewsbury.
“We look forward to your continued support and urge readers across the district to continue to use the paper to publicise their news and events to the people of Dewsbury and Mirfield.”
The combined paper retains the titles of both towns, which lie about three miles apart, in its masthead.
As is the case in Hebden Bridge and Todmorden, both titles also keep their own websites and social media channels.
HTFP has requested a comment from Johnston Press on the issue.
