Mark McLaughlin said: “I am really excited to be joining the team at The Times, and playing my part in ensuring that our readers are well-informed about the major issues happening across Scotland, the UK and wider world.”

Kieran Andrews said: “The Times is a newspaper that shows the value of investing in journalism. This promises to be another fascinating period in Scottish politics, and I am looking forward to helping the title build on its success.”
