Hi: 11° Lo:2°
THE EDITOR of the Coventry Telegraph has left the newspaper following allegations over his misuse of Twitter.
Darren Parkin, editor since 2009, no longer works at the city daily following an investigation into his conduct on the social networking site.
A spokesman at publishing company Trinity Mirror confirmed the news this morning but would not comment further.
Last month the Observer exclusively revealed Mr Parkin, 38, had been suspended.
The exact nature of the claims against him remain unclear, but they are believed to include comments made to his Twitter followers over a number of weeks.
He has not tweeted from his @covteled account since June 6 - the day he was suspended and escorted from the Corporation Street offices of the paper.
Mr Parkin, originally from Yorkshire, is a three-time winner of the UK Press Gazette Young Journalist of the Year.
