Rupert Murdoch is set to bring The Sun back to Manchester – planning to open a new headquarters in the city.

The news comes eight years after editor at the time, Rebekah Brooks, announced the closure of the Manchester office, leading to the loss of around 10 jobs.

The Sun were already believed to have been recruiting in the North, but the Press Gazette are reporting a number of journalists have been taken on in Manchester.

However, no former News of the World staff are expected to be rehired.

The news comes only days after the first BBC Breakfast show aired from MediaCity UK.
