Midland News Association, publisher of the Express & Star, has confirmed it is to close the Hereford Journal.

The free paper, which incorporated the former Ross on Wye and Leominster Journals, had a distribution of 39,377 according to the most recent ABC figures.

The closure is part of a major restructuring announced by the MNA in April that could see the loss of up to 76 jobs and the Express & Star and Shropshire Star titles printed overnight.

The final edition, with the cover date 11 June, will be published this week.
