News rescue plan rejected.
The Independent Tele-vision Commission asked ITV to come up with a plan to stop losing viewers following the demise of News At Ten.
But yesterday, they rejected the initial plans and gave ITV a further month to come up with a solution.
Details of the package were not made public because of commercial sensitivity.
Yesterday's meeting follows ITV's failure to satisfy key conditions imposed when the ITC gave the go-ahead to axe News At Ten and move the nightly bulletin to 11pm.
The conditions involved maintaining audiences for news bulletins, which have instead fallen dramatically.
