Regional publisher Trinity Mirror has proposed the closures of nine newspapers.

Midlands titles the Lichfield Post, Tamworth Times, Burton Trader, Walsall Observer, Loughborough Trader Xtra, Ashby Trader & Echo and Coalville Echo are to close.

As a result, offices in Burton and Walsall will be closed and a number of redundancies made.

Coventry newspapers the Rugby Times and the Bedworth Echo will also close, as well as niche publications the Earlsdon Blog and Farm Ad.

There is also a proposal to merge Solihull News and Solihull Times and have a single editor oversee these titles along with the Sutton Coldfield News.
