Regional publisher Newsquest has appointed a new editor to oversee a group of West Country weeklies.
Paul, whose full title will be head of news for Newsquest Somerset and Devon, was previously news and production editor at the Taunton-based title.
Paul, pictured above, will be the third editor to take charge at the County Gazette in the space of just over a year.
Paul’s appointment was announced to staff this week by Liz Bond, publisher of Newsquest Somerset.
She said: “I am sure you will all join me in congratulating Paul and wishing him every success in his new role.”
