STV is considering redundancies in its local news services as part of a review of its digital assets.

The company is known to be working on a project, internally named as Metropolis, to bring its online news and entertainment services into one place.

It is understood people working on the likes of STV’s city apps news services, which covered Aberdeen, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dundee, are among those at risk of losing their jobs.

However it is thought likely the Metropolis project would also create some new posts at the broadcaster.

STV chief executive Rob Woodward has said Metropolis is likely to launch next year.
