Berkshire Regionals acquisition escapes Competition Commission scrutiny

Dunfermline Press Limited has completed the aquisition of Berkshire Regional Newspapers from Trinity Mirror.

The deal had been on the table since the beginning of the year, but was delayed by the Office of Fair Trading over fears the takeoever would reduce competition in the area.

The deal was able to go ahead once the OFT was satisfied that competition had been restored in the area.

The takeoever includes papers in Slough, Windsor, Reading, Wokingham, Maidenhead, Bracknell and Ascott.
