  • It’s about to get even harder to win EuroMillions - and more expensive

    The EuroMillions lottery is about to get even more expensive for Brits - and it’s going to be even more impossible to win the jackpot. The price increase comes despite the fact that participation dropped by a staggering 40% the last time Camelot raised their prices for the National Lottery. In October 2013, ticket prices for the weekly National Lottery draws increased from £1 to £2, with the operator saying at the time that it predicted that the amount of money that it passes on to good causes would increase as a result.

In a tweet posted by HallowScreamUK, the organisers of a spooky attraction “confirmed” two X Factor acts – who are currently still in the singing competition – for an event on Saturday, November 5. Yes Lad – who were dropped on Sunday night in favour of Ottavio and Bradley, but have been selected as a wildcard act – appear to be headlining the gig while James Hughes also features on the line-up, alongside Girl Next Door who were eliminated over the weekend.

  • Brexit could make Britain highly attractive, says Axel Springer chief

    Brexit will be more painful for the rest of Europe than for Britain which could emerge stronger and better off than its European neighbours, Mathias Doepfner, chief executive of Axel Springer, told the Financial Times. Doepfner, head of one of Europe's largest media companies, said Britain was bound to experience short-term pain as a consequence of its June 23 vote to quit the EU. Doepfner said he saw Britain moving towards a "more free market-oriented model, while Europe is step by step transforming into a transfer union" where funds were being channelled from successful states to the struggling ones.

  • EU may refuse to sign up to new banking rules - sources

    By Andreas Kröner, Jonathan Gould and Huw Jones FRANKFURT/LONDON (Reuters) - The European Union may opt out of new global rules aimed at preventing another financial crash because officials are worried they put European banks at a disadvantage at a time when they are losing market share to U.S. rivals. European regulatory and banking sources said the rules, nicknamed "Basel IV" by bankers because they are an addition to "Basel III" capital rules that are already in place, unfairly penalise Europe's banks. U.S. regulators, and other supporters of the proposals, say they are needed to make sure banks have enough spare capital to match the amount of risk they have taken.

  • UK industry group slashes oil estimate as price drop hits investment

    By Karolin Schaps LONDON (Reuters) - Industry group UK Oil and Gas has slashed its estimate of Britain's existing oil and gas reserves by a third, saying weak oil prices have made it less likely that some resources will ever be retrieved. Oil prices are lingering near lows last seen during the 2009 financial crisis, freezing more than $300 billion in global upstream oil and gas spending in 2015 and 2016. For Britain, the world's number 21 oil and gas producer, weak investment has brought existing reserves to a five-year low of 6 billion-9 billion barrels of oil equivalent, down from 8 billion-12 billion last year.
