UK - Owners of two national newspapers are injecting £6m into the pension scheme of the printing firm they jointly own.
The Barclay brothers - the new owners of the Telegraph Group ñ and Richard Desmond, who controls the Express, said the injection was part of their plans to tackle the £84.5m West Ferry Printers Pension Schemes £30m deficit.
The decision to top up the scheme was made after Desmond dropped plans to buy out the Barclay brothers interest in the business.
The Docklands-based firm prints The Guardian and the Financial Times in addition to the Telegraph and the Express.
Sir Frederick and Sir David Barclay acquired half of West Ferry as part of their purchase of the Telegraph Group from Hollinger.

Morgan Stanley Investment Management managing director Laura Bottega was recognised at the Women in Pensions Awards. She tells Stephanie Baxter what has been key to her success.
