Liverpool Post closure "a tragedy", says union

It is a tragedy for the city and for the journalists that such an iconic title of such long standing has been closed down.

"It seems unbelievable that Liverpool cannot sustain a daily as well as weekly. It also sends alarm bells ringing for the consequences of the trend at Trinity Mirror and other newspaper groups to convert dailies to weekly production."

– Michelle Stanistreet, National Union of Journalists general secretary
