Nottingham-headquartered credit checking agency Experian is reported to be lining up a bid for part of London and Country Mortgages after the firm attempts to sell off part of its business ahead of a flotation that could be worth up to £300m.

The Telegraph says it is not clear when Experian entered the chase, nor when the deal might be finalised.
