Jason Kayley has been appointed deputy news editor of the Lancashire Telegraph.

He was previously Group PR Officer for the Together Housing Group for six years. Prior to that he was a sports reporter for the Lancashire Telegraph from 2005 to 2009.

Former deputy editor Alan Simpson was made redundant by the paper in November 2015 in what the NUJ described as a ‘brutal’ round of cost-cutting.

The paper’s staff recently moved from Railway Road, its home for 130 years, to Church Street in Blackburn.
