The Observer axes three monthly titles

The Observer is to close three of its monthly magazines as part of a major revamp of the Sunday title.
Observer Music Monthly, Observer Sport Monthly and Observer Woman will all close, although the Observer Food Monthly supplement will remain.
The redesign will also see the newspaper restructured as a four-section paper, consisting of news, sport, a review section and the Observer Magazine.
Business and financial coverage will be incorporated into the main news section, with travel coverage being moved into the new-look Observer Magazine.
The restructure comes as the newspaper's parent company, Guardian News & Media, has announced that it is to get rid of a further 100 employees in an effort to curb losses, which are currently running at £100,000 per day.
The company has already lost around 60 employees this year after entering a voluntary redundancy scheme, and has also shed around £10 million from its editorial budget.
