The article reports that Rupert Murdoch's News International has signaled its intention to bid for the London free afternoon newspaper contract by appointing a senior journalist from the free newspaper publisher Metro International. Speculation has been mounting that News International will pitch for the publication of a London, England freesheet, which will be distributed via London public transport in the afternoons. News International is likely to face competition from the likes of Associated and Express Newspapers if it does decide to bid for the freesheet.
