The Sunday Times Scotland has an editor for the first time in almost two years.

The News International title’s Scottish political editor, Jason Allardyce, will fill the vacancy created when the Scottish staff was reduced by almost 75% in a swingeing cost-cutting exercise.

Jason Allardyce has been with the Sunday Times Scotland for eight years since moving from Scotland on Sunday where he was associate editor. He will continue to cover the Scottish political beat.

The paper now has only four full-time staff – Allardyce, Mark Macaskill (news), Douglas Alexander (sport) and Gillian Bowditch (column and news features).

The paper’s ABC average sale last month was 52,747 - down 11.6% year-on-year from 59,681.

Allardyce told allmediascotland: "The paper remains the best-selling quality newspaper in Scotland and, against market trend, we've had two months of rising sales - February representing our best monthly sale since last summer.”
