Newsquest has appointed two acting editors to cover for Toby Granville while he’s on secondment.

Granville, group editor of Newsquest Dorset, has been appointed group editorial development director at Newsquest for a secondment which will initially be set for 12 months.

As a result Andy Martin has been promoted to acting editor at the Bournemouth Daily Echo. He was previously deputy editor and head of news at the paper and has been managing the news desk since 1997. As part of his new position, Martin will continue to combine his head of news role with that of acting editor.

Diarmuid Macdonagh has been appointed acting editor at the Dorset Echo in Weymouth. He was previously deputy editor and head of news at the title and has been managing the news desk there since 2009.
