Daily Telegraph business reporter Suzy Jagger, who broke the story
of the Mirror share tipping scandal, has accepted an offer from Mirror
editor Piers Morgan to edit its City page.
It was revealed two weeks ago that Morgan had made the offer. The
Mirror’s two financial journalists, Anil Bhoyrul and James Hipwell, were
sacked in February after being exposed for buying shares in companies
which they would then promote on their City Slickers page.
Since Bhoyrul and Hipwell’s departure City Slickers has been renamed
Financial Mirror. Clinton Manning has been in charge of the page, but
will now return to general finance reporting. The Mirror also has a
personal finance section, edited by John Husband.
Jagger, who is stock market reporter on the Telegraph, is understood to
have handed in her notice. She joined the Telegraph’s City pages from
its personal finance section.
