Digital boss Martha Lane Fox joins House of Lords

Martha Lane Fox - one of the pioneers of online commerce and the government's "digital champion" - has joined the House of Lords.

The 40-year-old, a co-founder of the lastminute.com website, will sit as an independent, or "crossbencher".

She will take the title Baroness Lane-Fox of Soho in the City of Westminster - her surname had to be hyphenated under Lords rules.
