the £35bn Ontario Municipal Employees Retirement System, said it could walk away. A Takeover Panel deadline for offers for the FTSE 100 water and sewerage services company expires tomorrow.
The Mail on Sunday: Payday lenders face competition probe
The controversial payday loans industry is set to face a full investigation from the Competition Commission over concerns that it makes huge profits from consumers who cannot afford the loans in the first place.
