Rupert Murdoch 'sensible' to launch Sun on Sunday

Rupert Murdoch is to launch a new weekend tabloid, the Sun on Sunday, "very soon", he says.

It said the News Corporation boss made the announcement to staff at the Sun during talks at News International's offices in Wapping, London.

Ten current and former senior staff at the paper have been arrested since November in connection with alleged corrupt payments to public officials.

Media analyst Steve Hewlett told the BBC he thought Mr Murdoch was "stuck between a rock and a hard place".
