Up to 30 jobs could go at the Daily and Sunday Telegraph as the paper plans to invest in new digital services.

According to a blog by Roy Greenslade on the Guardian, Telegraph Media Group's chief executive, Murdoch MacLennan, emailed staff today saying that it is a cost-saving exercise, with the money to be reinvested in digital innovation, particularly the development of iPad and Kindle editions of the newspaper.

MacLennan is quoted as saying in the email: "Today we have more reporters working here than we did then [in 2005], unlike many of our competitors who are struggling commercially, and in some cases making heavy losses."
