Wednesday will see the launch of the UK edition of the famous Huffington Post blog-led news site.

Having launched a Canadian version earlier this year the UK version will be the first outside of North America.

Arianna Huffington started the Huffington Post in 2005, and it was brought by AOL this year for $315m (£222m), although Ms Huffington has continued as president and editor-in-chief.

Ms Huffington will address a launch event on Wednesday, where spin doctor Alastair Campbell will be present.
