Sir Keir Starmer has set out his vision for a post-coronavirus Britain, declaring: "We can't return to business as usual."

Facebook has been described as a "school yard bully" running a "bulldozer" over democracy after it blocked access to news media in Australia, rather than pay to run their content.

A senior executive at Facebook has defended its decision to block access to news media in Australia and says it was taken with "a heavy heart".

The private equity firm behind Bonhams, the auction house, has joined the bidding for the UK restructuring services division of KPMG, the big four auditor.

Online greeting card retailer Moonpig has said it expects full-year revenue to almost double, helped by robust demand during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Almost two million people have not worked for at least six months, showing the scale of damage to the UK labour force caused by coronavirus.

Barclays has reported a 30% drop in pre-tax profits as its provision for bad loans due to the pandemic hit £4.8bn.

Employers may be able to draw up contracts requiring new staff to get a coronavirus jab, Justice Secretary Robert Buckland has suggested.

Nightclubs, bars and music venues face "extinction" unless urgent government action is taken, a cross-party group of MPs has warned.

Next month's budget is a "fork in the road" for the UK and should be treated as an almost post-war moment to forge a "new partnership" between business and government, according to Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer.
