End of an era as daily newspapers publish final editions

The final daily editions of the Gloucester Citizen and Gloucestershire Echo were published on Saturday.

They will be replaced by new weekly editions of the two titles which will appear for the first time this Thursday.

The Citizen's history dates back 141 years whilst the Echo was founded in 1873. But the changing way in which we all gather news has led to the switch.

Newspaper owners Trinity Mirror say more people get daily news online at sites such as gloucestershirelive.co.uk

In the final editions of the Citizen and Echo the new senior editor of both titles Rachael Sugden said the new weeklies will be 200 pages plus and continue to report comprehensively on all of the county. The cover price is £1.50p.

There will be a new Stroud edition of the Citizen to replace the weekly Stroud Life newspaper and Trinity Mirror's Bristol-based Western Daily Press newspaper will print a Gloucestershire edition.
