By David Milliken LONDON (Reuters) - Britain could borrow nearly 65 billion pounds more than planned in the next couple of years as new Chancellor Philip Hammond seeks to 'reset' government budget policy to ease the shock of last month's vote to leave the European Union. Ratings agencies and economists widely expect borrowing to rise materially next year for the first time since 2010, as Hammond has to call time - temporarily - on the austerity which dominated his predecessor George Osborne's six years in office. After taking office two weeks ago, Hammond said the darker post-Brexit outlook meant policies the Conservative government had pursued since 2010 needed to change - and economists are now starting to put numbers on what this might mean.

By Luciana Lopez and Amy Tennery PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - Democrats divided over the future of their party agreed on at least one thing at their national convention in Philadelphia on Monday night: Michelle Obama was a star. The first lady gave a speech in support of a former first lady, presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, and described America as "the greatest country on earth", clashing with Republican Donald Trump's "Make America Great Again" slogan and bringing an arena crowd riven by a fierce fight for the nomination to its feet. "I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves, and I watch my daughters - two beautiful, intelligent, black young women – playing with their dogs on the White House lawn," Michelle Obama said.

Nineteen people have been stabbed to death as they slept at a centre for disabled people in Japan's worst mass killing in decades. Police arrested 26-year-old Satoshi Uematsu, who was a former employee at the facility, after he handed himself in.

Ofcom has announced plans to split Openreach within BT Group (LSE: BT-A.L - news) , in a move it hopes will bolster digital communications competition. While the telecoms regulator's reform plans to make Openreach a "distinct company" build on its previous efforts to bolster competition, they fall short of calls for to be split from BT completely. Rivals have long complained that a conflict of interest means BT is both a provider of services to customers and responsible - through the Openreach phone and broadband network - for the final mile of network connection to consumers and businesses.

A Russian whistleblower who helped uncover the biggest doping scandal in decades has told Reuters that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) is more concerned about protecting the organisation than ridding world sport of drugs cheats. A day after the IOC rejected a request by his wife, former Russian drugs cheat Yulia Stepanova, to run in the Rio Games as an independent athlete, Vitaly Stepanov said an invite to attend the Rio Games as spectators felt like they were being bought.

Almost two thirds of Turks believe U.S.-based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen was behind a failed coup attempt in Turkey on July 15, a survey conducted by pollster Andy-Ar showed on Tuesday, backing the government line.
