Failure to reach an agreement with the trustees of Sainsbury's pension fund is threatening to scupper Delta Two's potential takeover of the supermarket chain.

Should Delta Two not reach an agreement with the trustees, it is unlikely that the Sainsbury family, an 18% shareholder in the FTSE listed business, will support a formal offer for the company.
