Andrew Papworth will edit the title as part of a wider role as editor for Mercury publisher Archant in South and West Norfolk.

It marks a return to the area for the 30-year-old, who edited the Mercury in 2014 before moving onto his most recent role as editor of The Journal in Lowestoft.

Mr Papworth said: 'I'm delighted to return to South Norfolk.
