    California siblings being treated after 'horrific' ordeal

    The 13 California siblings kept in "horrific" conditions by their parents, including some who were shackled to furniture, others who were starved, were being treated after an ordeal that could leave them scarred for years, authorities said on Tuesday. Police were investigating the circumstances under which the parents, David Allen Turpin, 57, and Louise Anna Turpin, 49, had subjected their children to the abuse, Captain Greg Fellows of the Riverside County Sheriff's Department said. Authorities were alerted after one of the children, an emaciated, 17-year-old girl, called police after escaping through a window of the house in Perris, about 70 miles (115 km) east of Los Angeles.

    May faces tougher transition stance from EU amid Norway pressure

    Theresa May has been hit with a double Brexit blow as the EU toughened up its terms for a transition period and Norway privately warned Brussels that giving in to the UK’s demands for a “special” trade deal could force it to rip up its own agreements with the bloc. A paper on Michel Barnier’s demands for the transition period, leaked to the Guardian, reveals that the EU plans to insist on the free movement of people throughout the period and the inclusion of people moving to the UK before 31 December 2020 in any post-Brexit agreement on citizens’ rights.

    EU still open to Britain changing mind on Brexit

    Leaders of the European Union institutions weighed into a new British debate on whether to hold a second referendum on Brexit by saying on Tuesday that Britons would be welcome to stay in the EU. Prime Minister Theresa May and her main opponent Jeremy Corbyn have ruled out giving voters a chance to approve whatever withdrawal treaty is agreed with Brussels before Britain leaves the bloc in March 2019. Updating the European Parliament on a summit he chaired last month at which EU leaders agreed to open talks with London on their post-Brexit future, European Council President Donald Tusk took the opportunity to support those calling for a rethink.

    Health-conscious Nestle sells U.S. candy to Ferrero for $2.8 billion

    LONDON/MILAN (Reuters) - Swiss food group Nestle has agreed to sell its U.S. confectionery business to Italy's Ferrero for $2.8 billion (£2 billion), it said on Tuesday, marking CEO Mark Schneider's first big sale and a small step on its path towards healthier products. Nestle, the world's biggest packaged-food company, has cited the unit's weak position in the United States, where it trails Hershey, Mars Inc and Lindt, as the rationale for a sale. For family-owned Ferrero, the cash deal offers a chance for the Italian company to build scale quickly in that key market, where it has done two other deals in the past year.

    Revealed: State-backed RBS's role in collapse of Carillion

    The taxpayer-backed Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) tightened the terms of its funding to the stricken Government contractor Carillion three days before it was forced to call in liquidators. Sky News has obtained a witness statement filed at the High Court by Keith Cochrane, its interim chief executive, which details the increasingly frenetic nature of efforts to rescue the company. Carillion collapsed on Monday, raising doubts about the future of more than 19,000 UK staff and igniting a political firestorm over ministers' handling of the crisis.

    West Ham vs Shrewsbury team news: Reece Oxford starts FA Cup replay

    Reece Oxford has been handed his first start in a West Ham senior side for the first time since March 2016 as the Hammers take on Shrewsbury Town in their FA Cup third round replay. The defender, who spent the first half of the season on loan with Borussia Monchengladbach, has seen his return to the side halted through injury having picked up a knock on his first day back in east London. The 19-year-old, a defender by trade, will play in the midfield as fellow youngster Reece Burke slots into a back four featuring right-back Sam Byram, making his first appearance since the EFL Cup win over Tottenham in October.
