News editor leaves as Lite and Standard merge

London Lite news editor Mike Leese left on June 6.

The freesheet has integrated news coverage with paid-for sister paper The Evening Standard, with the Standard’s news editor, Hugh Dougherty, and deputy Steve Vaughan overseeing news coverage across both titles.

London Lite reporters Bo Wilson and Georgina Littlejohn will remain at the paper, but will also contribute stories to The Evening Standard.

The Evening Standard and London Lite are published five days a week by Associated Newspapers.
