Rob Lawson has left his position as editor of the Sunderland Echo.

Lawson has been editor at the paper since 2002, joining from the Shields Gazette. His departure comes shortly after Echo-publisher Johnston Press announced the relocation of the paper's print plant from Sunderland to Sheffield. The plant's closure is the third by JP this year.

Deputy editor Richard Ord is to become acting editor until a permanent replacement has been found.
