Ryanair has announced plans to make it mandatory for adults travelling with children under 12 to buy reserved seating. The low-cost carrier says the change, which will come into force from 1 September, is to prevent young families from being split up on busy planes and delaying departures. This was causing boarding issues as crews attempted to re-seat customers with young families, not least because Ryanair's flights this summer are said to be running at 94% capacity.

By William Schomberg LONDON (Reuters) - The Bank of England (BoE) must decide over the coming week how much trouble Britain's economy is in following the shock vote to leave the European Union, and how much firepower it can throw at the problem. After the Bank of Japan (BoJ) on Friday disappointed expectations of a major new stimulus drive, the BoE could even add to the Brexit uncertainty in Britain if it simply shaves its already record-low interest rates, some economists say. A Reuters poll of economists published on July 26 predicted the British central bank would cut its benchmark Bank Rate to 0.25 percent from 0.50 percent on Aug. 4, but most said it would not revive its massive bond-buying programme for now.

By Huw Jones and Andrew MacAskill LONDON (Reuters) - Banks from Italy, Ireland, Spain and Austria fared worst in the latest European Union stress test, which the region's banking watchdog said on Friday showed there was still work to do in order to boost credit to the bloc's economy. "While a number of individual banks have clearly fared badly, the overall finding of the European Banking Authority - that Europe's banks are resilient to another crisis - is heartening," Anthony Kruizinga at PwC said. Italy's Monte dei Paschi , Austria's Raiffeisen , Spain's Banco Popular and two of Ireland's main banks came out with the worst results in the EBA's test of 51 European Union (EU) lenders.
