The majority of The Sun's digital content will be made available for free from 30 November.

Almost two years after the Sun began charging for access to its website chief executive of News UK Rebekah Brooks told staff in an email: "As of November 1, Sun+ customers will no longer be billed for reading The Sun's digital content and we will be transitioning to a largely free world by the end of the month".

The managing editor of MailOnline in the US Keith Poole will also be joining the site as digital editor.
