An editor has left his role after a round of redundancies at a daily newspaper and its Sunday sister title.
Brendan, pictured, had been in charge at the Mail since 2016 after his predecessor Jim Wilson took voluntary redundancy.
He will be replaced by Lorna Hughes, who becomes the first female editor of the Mail and the first female editor of any Scottish national title for nearly 20 years.
HTFP has asked Reach for clarification on how many redundancies have been made at the two titles, but it is understood sports journalist and columnist Gordon Waddell is also among those to have left the company.
A spokeswoman for the Daily Record and Sunday Mail said: “A number of redundancies were made last week at the Daily Record and Sunday Mail.
“We want to thank those members of staff for their work and wish them the very best for the future.”
