A decade ago: ITV shares rise on OFT, Ofcom reports
Shares in ITV rose more than 2% on Friday on speculation that BSkyB might be forced to sell its 17.9% stake in the broadcaster, clearing the way for a renewed takeover bid. Trade secretary Alistair Darling received a report from the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) recommending Sky's stake be referred to the Competition Commission. Media regulator Ofcom also told Darling that the stake raised "public interest issues" over the "plurality of news provision" in the UK. Darling now has until May 26 to decide whether a referral is necessary.
