I'm surprised this hasn't had any coverage:

I guess all of the news regarding the various riots in the country are rightly dominating the headlines, however I couldn't see this story anywhere in the mainstream media:  

OFT fines certain supermarkets and processors almost £50 million in dairy decision

The supermarkets involved are Asda (who received leniency), Safeway, Sainsbury's and Tesco - the big three of these receiving fines of around £10m each.  Now I know this is mainly small change to them (Tesco made £3.54bn profit last year, and Asda is owned by Walmart who are the worlds largest retailer) but it is good to see the OFT taking action.

Twitter is really good for drawing your attention to things you may have otherwise missed.
