A series of newspapers covering Devon, Dorset and Somerset has closed blaming a fall in revenue.

The View From series was based in Lyme Regis, Dorset, with editions covering Axminster, Seaton and Honiton in Devon, Bridport, Dorchester and Weymouth in Dorset, and South Somerset.

It is understood around 20 jobs have been made redundant as a result of the closure.

View News issued a statement on its Facebook page confirming the decision.

The statement said: "It is with great regret that the decision has been taken to close View From Newspapers with immediate effect due to falling advertising revenue and the continued difficult trading climate.

"Thank you to all our loyal readers & advertisers for your support over the past 12 years.‬"

A spokesman for the owners, quoted on the Holdthefrontpage media industry website, said: “Having acquired the titles out of administration in July of last year we agreed to continue publishing the loss-making titles for six months in a bid to give continued employment for the staff.

“But in the light of continued falling revenues, we have reluctantly decided that the titles are no longer sustainable.”

The View From titles had a combined weekly distribution of 33,000. They were bought by Truro City Football Club chairman Peter Masters in July 2017 following his buyout of the Liskeard-based Sunday Independent newspaper.

The last story published on the View News website was on January 3.

The news was met with sadness on social media.

Comments on the company's Facebook page included:

Jilly Parry: "Very sad indeed, will miss the View From newspapers immensely. Good luck to you all in whatever your next venture may be, and thank you."

Tricia Hawkins: "Very sad sign of the times in journalism. We shall miss you."

Tony Mcdougal: "Really sad news - some really solid journalism over the years".


Joanne Smith: "What a shame as much as progress is good this is another example of the past disappearing due to the internet !!!"

Racheal Rattenbury: "So sad to hear this news, a great loss. Thank you all to the View From for providing a fantastic service over the years. You will be greatly missed. Good luck to all the team looking for alternative work."
