Internet newspaper The Huffington Post has launched a UK edition.

Until now, the site, which was launched by Arianna Huffington in 2005, has only been available in North America and Canada. The Huffington Post offers is own unique content in the storm of article and blogs as well as stories from other sites.

"Our goal is to give our readers a one-stop shop for all the information they need to know - whether we're reporting on it, curating it from the best sources around the world, or our bloggers are weighing in with their takes on it," said Huffinton in a blog.

"All delivered in real time, on every platform (don't forget to download our smartphone and tablet apps!), and using every possible medium."

The Huffington Post was acquired by AOL in February this year for $315m (£222m). Huffington was named President and Editor-in-Chief of a new division at AOL that integrates all Huffington Post and AOL content, including Engadget, TechCrunch, Moviefone, MapQuest, and more.

It is also thought a French edition of the The Huffington will launch in the coming months. The launch comes just months after AOL laid-off 900 members of staff.
