Editor in chief appointed for Eastbourne and Hastings weeklies

Keith Ridley has been appointed editor in chief of a number of Sussex Newspapers-owned weeklies after the departure of two group editors.

Both Peter Austin, editor of the Eastbourne Gazette and the Eastbourne Herald, and Peter Lindsey, editor the Hastings Series, have left as part of a merge between Sussex Newspapers and T.R. Beckett, both owned by Johnston Press.
