The Mail’s Hartlepool office has relocated from Scarborough Street in the town to a premium office suite in Advanced House in Wesley Square which we had previously occupied since the office was built in the 1990s.

The building has undergone a major investment and conversion to modern offices by current owner Rob Collier and his team at Advanced Retail Solutions.

Joy Yates, Hartlepool Mail Editor and JPIMedia North East Editorial Director, said: "We are delighted to be 'back home' in a superb fit-for-purpose office, in an ideal town centre location.
