The Visitor’s news editor Ingrid Kent is leaving the newspaper this week after 19 years.

Ingrid first joined The Visitor as a reporter in 1994.

Following a short stint working for The Scotsman newspaper, Ingrid returned to The Visitor in 1996 as entertainments editor, before becoming news editor in 1998.

Ingrid was also acting Visitor editor from 2009 to 2010. She will continue to write her ‘Out There’ column.

Ingrid said: “My heart has always been in Morecambe and I have loved working on The Visitor. I would like to thank the people of the Morecambe and Lancaster area for 19 wonderful years.”
