Online readers of one of Britain's largest daily newspapers will soon be charged for accessing content.

The Times, which belongs to Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation, is read online by 1.2 million visitors a day, more than twice the number that buy a newspaper.

From June this year, the company will charge online readers Stg 1 pound a day.

News Corp's Sunday Times will also charge online readers for content.
