Redundancy requests at Herald almost 50

allmediascotland reports today the number of people seeking voluntary redundancy at Newsquest's Herald group of newspapers in Glasgow is now almost 50.
Staff at the The Herald, Sunday Herald and Evening Times were made redundant and asked to reapply for a reduced number of posts. allmediascotland says it understands efforts are on-going to prevent the number of production staff falling to "perilously low levels".
It quotes an insider: "There is a strange feeling in the building. There's euphoria among those leaving that the stress of working in the place will soon be behind them and real sadness that a great team is being decimated. Everybody fears for the future of the paper."
