Hunt: Sky news will remain 'impartial'

Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation has moved a step closer to taking full control of BSkyB, after the government provisionally accepted plans to spin off Sky News as a separate company.

The Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt has added four new conditions to the deal designed to allay fears that the Murdochs will have too much control of the media.

They include making sure an independent director attends Sky News board meetings.
