Young people are more willing to pay for online news than any other age group, according to a major study of internet habits.

The survey of 11,000 internet users in nine countries including the UK found that 25- to 34-year-olds are twice as likely to part with their cash for digital news than older readers.

According to the study, 20% of 25- to 34-year-olds said they had paid for online news compared with less than 10% of those aged over 55.
