News International announced late on Friday 18 January that editor John Witherow had been put on leave from The Sunday Times, a newspaper he has edited for the past 18 years, and had been appointed acting editor of The Times.

Witherow’s long-standing deputy, Martin Ivens, has been appointed acting editor of The Sunday Times.

James Harding, the former editor of The Times, resigned in December 2012.

Undertakings agreed by chairman and chief executive Rupert Murdoch in 1981, means the editorial teams of The Times and The Sunday Times can not be combined, and editors’ appointments must be approved by a panel of independent directors.
