The publisher of the Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday is set to make cuts across its editorial and commercial operations as the coronavirus pandemic continues to affect revenues.

One hundred roles have been put at risk with the majority of the cuts being to the commercial departments, the Guardian and Press Gazette have reported today.

The Mail on Sunday’s Event magazine will be no longer be printed as a standalone product, following the decision to suspend publication during lockdown.

Those working on the Sunday supplements Event and You will be mainly affected by the cuts, it is reported.

Last week the Evening Standard announced it was preparing to cut up to 115 staff following the financial impact of the coronavirus crisis on advertising revenue and print circulation.
