Pitcher took the newly created title of religion editor at The Daily Telegraph on Tuesday, overseeing religious reporting at the daily, its Sunday title and its website.

Pitcher said he would now be 'channelling the talents' of religious affairs correspondents, Martin Beckford and Jonathan Wynne-Jones.

He retains the title of chairman at his consultancy Bridgit Kildare, but has handed 'all commercial interests' in the firm to colleagues.
