The Gloucester Citizen is closing its offices at the Oxbode in Gloucester today.

Staff will now be based at the offices of the Gloucestershire Echo, in Cheltenham, and Citizen readers are being advised to contact the newspaper at the Echo’s St James’ Square address.

Both titles are now owned by Trinity Mirror following the company’s purchase of Local World.

The Citizen had been based at The Oxebode, pictured above, since 2007, when it moved there from its previous St John’s Lane home.

The Echo’s office sits 9.1 miles away from Gloucester city centre, a journey which takes around 22 minutes by car.

Latest circulation figures show a sharp fall in sales locally.
