YOUR Gainsborough Standard is pleased to announce the arrival of our new editor.

Chris Burton first joined the company as a trainee reporter in 2002 after completing an MA in journalism at Sheffield University.

He later worked at the Gainsborough Standard as deputy editor before moving to work in Sheffield and Doncaster.

“I’ve already got a strong affinity with Gainsborough as I spent a very enjoyable spell here as deputy editor a few years back,” he said. “The town has always demanded a strong and vibrant local newspaper and we always worked hard to give them just that.”

He added: “I’m delighted to see that great work has been carried on since I was here last, and I promise we’ll be doing everything to ensure it stays that way.”
