And the Daily Mail says the suspected spies were arrested as a part of a major national security investigation.

Meanwhile, in the Financial Times, private equity group TPG Capital has approached EY about buying a stake in their consulting arm.

Due to rising wages, there will be a significant bump of up to £72 a month in the state pension, according to the Daily Express.
