The £200m merger between UK takeaway giant Just Eat and Hungryhouse has now been referred for an in-depth merger investigation.

Earlier this month, the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) said that it would refer the deal for an in-depth investigation because of concerns that the merger could lead to worse terms for restaurants using either company.
