Government pledge on local newspaper crisis

The Government responded to the crisis facing newspapers today by announcing it was undertaking an investigation to see what could be done to help the industry, Parliamentary correspondent David Rose reports on the Press Gazette website.
Rose says:"Media secretary Andy Burnham said that he had asked Lord Carter of Barnes, the communications minister, to look at the local news media as part of his work on developing digital communications in Britain and agreed himself to meet with the National Union of Journalists."
