National coverage of Johnston Press cuts and changes to Calderdale papers

The Guardian has good coverage of Johnston Press’s closure of the offices for Hebden Bridge Times, Tod News and Brighouse Echo, along with its changing the Halifax Courier from a daily to a weekly paper with more extensive online news, and a number of proposed compulsory editorial reduncies.

Journalists at the Halifax Courier NUJ Chapel met with the NUJ Northern/Midlands Organiser today, and a representative from the Chapel was later due to meet with the editor in chief to discuss better ways of introducing changes, that would maintain good local news coverage.
