• Sterling slips after Northern Ireland court rejects Brexit trigger challenge

    By Jemima Kelly LONDON (Reuters) - Sterling hit an eight-day low against the euro on Friday, after Northern Ireland's High Court ruled that the law of the province did not restrict the British prime minister's ability to trigger an exit from the European Union. A similar case has been taken to the High Court in London, with campaigners arguing the government does not have the authority to trigger Article 50 without the explicit support of parliament. The Northern Ireland High Court said its ruling related only to Northern Ireland law, and would not prejudice proceedings in the English case.

While the presence of migrants there is not new, it has grown substantially this week, Colombe Brossel, Paris deputy mayor in charge of security issues, told Reuters.

  • UK support for Nissan may be costly, hard to calculate

    By Tom Bergin LONDON (Reuters) - The support that the UK government has promised carmaker Nissan in return for building new models in Britain could prove expensive, but the Japanese carmaker's complex structure makes it hard to estimate. Nissan announced on Thursday it would build the new Qashqai and the X-Trail SUV in Sunderland, England, after saying in September it would only commit to new UK investment if it got a promise of compensation should Britain's move to leave the European Union lead to new taxes on car exports. Nissan's main UK arm sells vehicles worth 5.3 billion pounds a year, its accounts show.
