The Scarborough News is to move to new offices in the new year.

The weekly newspaper has sold its Aberdeen Walk premises and will move to a new location on Scarborough Business Park, about four miles away.

Staff are expected to relocate in February or March.

A spokesman for Johnston Press said: “We know how important the Scarborough News is to our local community and are currently looking at a range of options to ensure the needs of our customers are still met.”

The publisher is currently looking to raise over £8m by disposing of property, including the Whitby Gazette’s historic offices and the town centre offices of the Bridlington Free Press.

The Scarborough News was launched in May 2012 as a relaunch of the Scarborough Evening News, which was first published in 1882.
