D-Scene publishes final edition

4:23 pm on 29 May 2013

The Dunedin newspaper D-Scene has been closed by owner Fairfax Media.

Launched five years ago as a competitor to the city's dominant newspaper, the Otago Daily Times, the paper published its last edition on Wednesday.

Sources say D-Scene's eight staff have lost their jobs, but one position will be kept in Dunedin as a reporter for other Fairfax publications.

Last week, the Australasian newspaper firm confirmed job losses were likely across the entire company.
