BIRMINGHAM, England (Reuters) -British Prime Minister Liz Truss triggered a new row in her party on Tuesday by suggesting she could limit increases in benefit payments to less than soaring inflation as she seeks ways to fund her tax-cutting growth plan. Britain's new leader has endured a tumultuous time since she came to power on Sept. 6, first leading national mourning for Queen Elizabeth before releasing an economic package that sent international investors bolting for the exits. Lawmakers from the governing Conservatives - even some cabinet ministers - bickered over the direction of the party as it held its annual conference, with opinion polls pointing to electoral collapse rather than a honeymoon period for Truss.

The newly redeveloped Battersea Power Station, one of the toughest challenges ever faced by a London property developer, opens next week after a 10-year project to turn it into a hub of offices, apartments, restaurants and shops. The 1930s building, often described as the "Everest of real estate", once supplied a fifth of the capital's electricity, including to Buckingham Palace and Parliament. Apple will become the largest office tenant, occupying six floors in the former central boiler house of the power station, known for its four white chimneys that dominate the skyline over the south bank of the River Thames.
