The Week: City News - Sky in talks over ITV stake

BSkyB is reported to have held talks with RTL, the owner of five, about selling its 17.9 per cent stake in ITV. However, the Competition Commission investigation into the acquisition, which was announced last week, has caused problems; Sky is unable to sell its whole stake until the inquiry is completed without permission from the secretary of state for trade and industry, Alistair Darling.
