OFT to examine Trinity Mirror's takeover of Manchester Evening News

The Office of Fair Trading has opened an invitation for interested parties to comment on whether it should refer Trinity Mirror’s planned takeover of Guardian Media Group’s 32 regional newspapers, including the flagship Manchester Evening News, to the Competition Commission for investigation.

The NUJ has already raised fears about the ‘diversity of information’once any takeover goes through. It has said it’ll raise the issue with the Department of Business Innovation and Skills.
