Media: Media Briefs - Conflict in Manchester over Metro title

Associated Newspapers has been forced to change the name of its daily morning freesheet, Metro North West. The paper has been renamed News North West, after legal action from the Manchester Evening News, which publishes a rival, Manchester Metro News. The local publisher launched Manchester Metro News in November last year, on the same day as Associated’s title.
