• Talks over the future distribution of the Daily Mail and The Mail on Sunday are going on between the newspapers' publishers, Associated Newspapers, and parcels carrier TNT.
Associated Newspapers confirms that they are talking but says: "The talks are purely exploratory and at the request of TNT." It also says TNT has been busy looking for business throughout Fleet Street.
TNT is already delivering News International's titles, The Sun, Times, Sunday Times and News of the World from the printing plants at Wapping, East London and Glasgow throughout Britain.
Associated Newspapers uses the traditional rail system to deliver its main titles, and it has been reported that there is still four years to run on its British Rail contract.
The Mail on Sunday already uses road for its You magazine. Those hauliers are also in discussion with The Mail on Sunday over its future distribution plans.
"We are keeping our options open, but that doesn't mean we are going to leave British Rail. Our future decisions depend on whatever other Fleet Street newspapers decide to do, and how our future move to the Surrey Docks goes," The Mail on Sunday says.
