With immediate effect users of UpMyStreet will be re-directed to Zoopla.

Figures from website monitoring firm Nielson show that in March UpMyStreet received 600,000 unique users.

This deal follows the decision last month by The Office of Fair Trading to give Zoopla the go ahead for its merger with Digital Property Group which is expected to complete within the next few weeks.
