Former Daily Telegraph editor Tony Gallagher rejoins Daily Mail

Tony Gallagher, who was sacked as editor of the Daily Telegraph in January, has been hired by the Daily Mail as joint deputy editor.

He will work alongside Jon Steafel, reporting to long-serving Daily Mail editor Paul Dacre.

Gallagher left the Telegraph amid a restructure of its senior editorial management billed as readying it for the "next phase of digital transformation".

He earlier worked for the Mail as head of news before leaving for the Telegraph in 2006.
