- Classified ads paper Loot is to become the first online classified service to begin charging for its ads.

The three year old site will charge £1.30 for 24 hours access to its classified site, which contains classified ads for all types of goods including music, computers and accommodation.

Loot is calling the service 'pay-per-day' and it will provide access to the latest ads from the most recent editions of the paper. Placing ads and reading archive ads will remain free to access

A spokesman for Loot said: "For Loot, our pay-per-day service is the first real step away from our printed product.
