Not really construction news but important none the less.

Editor calls for new digital hub to be based in Birmingham

The editor of the Birmingham Post is calling for a planned digital service to rival the BBC to be based in the city.

Marc Reeves said that the city was well placed to host the Public Service Publisher announced by regulator Ofcom in January.

His comments came ahead of a Birmingham Post business breakfast meeting with Philip Graf, deputy chairman of Ofcom, today.

He said: "Birmingham is an ideal location for this because of the growing number of software houses, television production companies and other creative organisations that are thriving in the city. It also benefits from its proximity to London.

"The new PSP is going to be a very organic and loose collection of creative businesses and individuals producing content on digital platforms."
