Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp is to move its entire London operations to an office block at the foot of London’s Shard skyscraper, marking the first major office letting for the Qatari-owned scheme.

The move will see News Corp’s wire service Dow Jones, publisher HarperCollins and News UK, which publishes the Sun and the Times, come under one roof for the first time, the group said yesterday.

It will take over the entire 430,000sq ft building called The Place, which sits next to London Bridge station in the shadow of its more famous neighbour.
