Starbucks hit by store protests

Coffee chain Starbucks has been hit by protests today over its tax arrangements despite announcing changes to its payments.

The US-owned giant said it expects to pay around £10 million in UK corporation tax for each of the next two years, following the revelation that it paid just £8.6 million in 14 years of trading in Britain and nothing in the last three years.

Activist group UK Uncut has planned more than 40 demonstrations across the country, "transforming" Starbucks stores into refuges, creches and homeless shelters.
