Northcliffe may switch to overnight printing in Leicester, Nottingham and Derby

Three of Northcliffe's East Midlands dailies - the Leicester Mercury, Nottingham Evening Post and Derby Evening Telegraph - are likely to move to overnight printing as a result of plans to close the printing press at Leicester, HoldtheFrontPage reports today.
Proposals to close the Leicester plant were unveiled at the same time as plans for centralised subbing hubs in Nottingham and Hull.
The move could mean the Derby and Nottingham papers dropping "Evening" from their name. Northcliffe's dailies in Hull, Grimsby, Scunthorpe and Lincoln are already printed overnight.
