Sun features editor sacked by News Corp clean-up team

Former NoW news editor loses his job as phone-hacking investigations continue.

The Sun's features editor Matt Nixson has been sacked on the recommendation of the News Corp phone-hacking clean-up committee.

Before joining The Sun last year Nixson was a former news editor at the News of the World, reporting to Ian Edmonson, the former assistant editor arrested over phone-hacking allegations earlier this year.

Nixson became news editor at the NoW in May 2006, taking over from James Weatherup, who was also arrested by the Met over phone hacking allegations in April.
