News International are set to cut 110 jobs over the coming months as they look to downgrade their operations by 4%.

New chief executive Tom Mockridge sent an internal memo to staff members at the group who run The Sun, The Times and The Sunday Times, explaining the decision.

"Our industry is changing rapidly, and like other media organisations we must continually evolve how we work," he wrote.

"We have been seeing efficiencies for some time. We expect to reduce the News International workforce by 110 staff positions."

Further to that, following the phone-hacking scandal that resulted in The News of the World ceasing to exist, News International will also review its use of freelance workers.

Tom Mockridge assumed the role of chief executive following the closure of The News of the World, which also saw Rebekah Brooks resign, and it has been a tough start to his tenure, with no immediate sign of improvement.
