  • Escort's diary recalls encounter with HBOS exec: 'Chinese meal. Then drinks at flat and quick shag. Easy £1500.'

    Lynden Scourfield, a former senior banker at Halifax Bank of Scotland, took gifts of cash, luxury holidays and "high class escorts," a jury in London has heard during a trial surrounding an alleged fraud that cost HBOS £245 million ($317 million). The trial, which began on Monday, involves David Mills and Michael Bancroft who ran consultancy firm Quayside, accountants Tony Cartwright and Jonathan Cohen, and HBOS manager Mark Dobson, all of whom pleaded not guilty. As part of the evidence given during proceedings, prosecutors told the jury that Scourfield, who ran the HBOS impaired assets division and who is not on trial, lent large sums of money to troubled small businesses.

  • 12 cars that depreciate in price quickly and are good to buy used (12 photos)

    If you’re in the market for a new car, you may be tempted to drive a brand new one off the lot. After all, many manufacturers are already releasing their feature-packed 2017 models, and the weather hasn’t even turned cold yet. But, before you do, consider this: a new study by iSeeCars.com, an automotive data and research company, found that buying a new car is not always going to get you the best bang for your buck. In fact, the company discovered that purchasing some cars that are just a year old can provide consumers with substantial savings. To establish the savings, iSeeCars.com analyzed the more than 14 million cars sold from August 1, 2015 to July 31, 2016, excluding models with fewer than 250 new and 250 used cars sold. The average asking prices of year-old cars were compared to those of new cars from the same model, according to the release, with the difference in price expressed as a percentage of the new model average price. This percentage was then compared to the overall percentage difference across all models. Using this data, iSeeCars.com researchers found that the average price difference between a new car and a lightly used car was 21.2 per cent, ranging from $6,099 to $19,966 in savings. (Note: For this study, a lightly used car is defined as a vehicle from the 2014-2015 model years with mileage within 20 per cent of 13,476, the average annual miles traveled in the U.S., according to the Department of Transportation.) But it isn’t all cars ? iSeeCars.com established a dozen vehicles that offer the best value when purchased lightly used instead of brand new, with price differences between 31.2 per cent and 34.6 per cent ? at least 1.5 times more than the overall average. Click through to see those 12 cars. The content of this slideshow originally appeared as a Credit.com story found here. All figures in U.S. dollars.

  • Bad Brad vs Saint Angelina? The Jolie-Pitt divorce is just history repeating itself

    While her mother presented a saintly, compassionate image, the sad truth was that when she died she had fallen out with most of her friends and family, including her father, sister, brother and others, often for the most trivial of reasons. While both Angie and her brother James have waxed lyrical about their mother’s marvellous home cooking, in reality, the kids lived on take-outs and she was rarely at home – often flying somewhere for work or her love life dating, among others, Burt Reynolds, Warren Beatty and Al Pacino. The children were raised by an assortment of friends and out of work actors who doubled up as nannies. When Marche – or Marche Mallow – was around she had few boundaries for

  • 'How do I tell my little girls daddy won't see them grow up?'

    From the moment I met Ross, eight years ago, there was an instant spark. Literally the next day I left Essex to move in with him in Coventry. I’m an actress – I played Emma Miller in Byker Grove for seven years – and Ross’s dad is ex-Aston Villa player Andy Blair, so we come from similar worlds. We’re so close, his friends even call us ‘Rolly’. Three years later, our daughter Brooke was born and we got married when she was 11 months. We wanted to do it our way and didn’t tell a soul – we just had two witnesses at Coventry registry office. I wore a white hoodie with a red dress and Ross wore his dad’s old football shirt from his Sheffield Wednesday days. Afterwards, we went for a cuppa and a scone.

  • It’s about to get even harder to win EuroMillions - and more expensive

    The EuroMillions lottery is about to get even more expensive for Brits - and it’s going to be even more impossible to win the jackpot. The price increase comes despite the fact that participation dropped by a staggering 40% the last time Camelot raised their prices for the National Lottery. In October 2013, ticket prices for the weekly National Lottery draws increased from £1 to £2, with the operator saying at the time that it predicted that the amount of money that it passes on to good causes would increase as a result.

  • End of an era as Blackberry stops making phones

    The demise of Blackberry's handset making division follows efforts to compete with other smartphones. The Canadian company released its first Android smartphone last year, which was followed with the  Dtek50 this summer, billed as "the world's most secure Android smartphone". However, it has failed to reverse a trend of falling revenues since 2010, when the company was at its peak. The popularity of BlackBerry Messenger and its high-tech email system made its phones a smash hit among young users and professionals alike, but Apple's iPhone and Google's Android software, with millions of apps and full touchscreens, rendered them obsolete. BlackBerry's response, its BlackBerry 10 software, was released
