Indy editor Amol Rajan just sent staff this curt email to worried staff:
Further to Steve’s email just now, I am very conscious that this morning’s news about Johnston Press will prompt a lot of questions and uncertainty.
I am very sorry to say, however, that for the time being we really are bound by strict rules on what we can and can’t say about this potential deal.
For that reason we are not in a position to address all staff this morning. I will obviously do all I can to keep everyone updated as soon as possible, within the guidelines of the law.
Thank you very much indeed for your understanding in the meantime.
