Reading has a EuroMillions millionaire - but the winner is completely unaware of the win.

Ticket buyers are being urged to check their homes and pockets as time is running out to claim their prize, which also includes a luxury yacht.

If the lucky winner doesn't come forward before 21 October, then the prize money and its interest will go to help National Lottery-funded projects across the UK.

Rail fares to rise 1% as inflation shows little movement

Rail fares will rise by 1% in January 2016.

Average rail fares will increase by 1% from January, after the Retail Prices Index (RPI) stood at that amount in July, unchanged from the previous month.

It comes after the government froze fares in real terms for the next five years by matching them to the inflation measure.

Meanwhile, the Consumer Prices Index (CPI) measure rose to 0.1% in July from 0% in June, official figures also showed.

The Office for National Statistics, which released the figures, said it was the sixth month running that CPI, the headline measure of inflation, stood at or very close to zero.

It said the slight 0.1% increase was mainly due to clothing costs, with "smaller price reductions in this year's summer sales compared with a year ago".

"Food and motor fuel prices continue to fall and have helped stop a larger rise in the rate of inflation," head of CPI Richard Campbell said.

Libor rate-rigging proved costly for a number of banks

Libor rate-rigging was a practice that proved costly for a number of banks when the extent of the scandal emerged in the wake of the 2007 and 2008 financial crisis.

Barclays was the first bank to be fined over the affair
was paid by UBS and the US Justice Department filed charges against British trader Tom Hayes
was the fine for Royal Bank of Scotland
was the fine levied on Lloyds Banking Group in July 2014 after it admitted rate-rigging

Much of the money paid in fines in the UK has been allocated to charities.
