Times' India correspondent quits

Jeremy Page leaves the paper for the Wall Street Journal.

The Times' India correspondent, Jeremy Page, has set out plans to leave the paper, according to the Guardian.

Page, who was earlier lined up as China correspondent to replace Jane McCartney, is understood to have landed a job with the Wall Street Journal.

The Times' Middle East correspondent, James Hider, will take up Page's role as India correspondent. It is still unclear who will be appointed as McCartney's replacement, after her return to join the foreign desk.

The changes come as the Times undergoes a round of about 20 compulsory redundancies in addition to 40 voluntary departures.

The Times spokeswoman was unavailable for comment.
