Since breaking news that ex-Telegraph editor Martin Newland is setting up a newspaper for the United Arab Emirates in Abu Dhabi, Press Gazette has been inundated with coy requests from journalists asking for Newland’s contact details.

A number of casualties from rounds of News International and Telegraph redundancies are also known to be interested.
