Associated Newspapers owned Metro plans to shut its five regional editorial offices.
Metro announced a series of potential redundancies from its regional editorial operations.
An external statement issued by the newspaper said: “The redundancies are part of Metro’s cost reduction plans, in response to the challenging economic conditions we face. We will be consulting fully with employees affected by this announcement.”
