Former publishing editor of the Eastern Daily Press Saturday magazine and Norfolk glossy magazine Peter Waters has returned to the paper as deputy editor. Mr Waters left in 2001 to become publisher in Cheltenham of a group of county magazines owned by the EDP's parent company Archant. More recently he has spent time travelling around the world with his wife, Tracy.

In his first spell with the EDP, Mr Waters, 39, was project editor for the title's successful relaunch as a compact-sized newspaper as well as launching the Saturday magazine and EDP Norfolk magazine.

"I'm delighted to be back at the country's best regional newspaper," said Mr Waters. "Being Norfolk born and bred I'm very aware that the EDP is woven into the fabric of the region and I look forward to working with the team to help continue the development of what is a special newspaper in a very special part of the country."

Mr Waters replaces former deputy editor James Ruddy who left the EDP at the beginning of this year to work in the health service, although Mr Ruddy still makes occasional contributions to the editorial content of the EDP.
