So Long, Farewell

Liverpool Confidential was on hand at the Lady of Mann pub, behind Rigby's in the city centre last Friday, to note the leaving party for those Oldham Echo staff to get the chop by Trinity Mirror ( ).
LC's mole even took along a camera to get some touching snaps of a tired & emotional group, some of whom were bidding a fond, or maybe not so fond, adieu to life on Old Hall Street.
As a city centre Echo seller, leaning on his stall near Echo HQ, said to me a week or so back while pointing in its general direction, "They used to produce a newspaper there, you know. It embarrasses me to flog this rag now."
