Marks & Spencer, the ailing UK retailer, is facing more problems. It emerged last week that profits from the company’s food division have fallen drastically. The situation is further compounded by the fact that its clothing division remains seriously depressed. Profits from the food business have regressed by about 45 per cent over the past four years and there is strong evidence that the company is lagging further behind most of its main rivals. M&S’s share price fell further last week to a new low of £1.71, a far cry from £6.70 achieved three years ago.Gravy train grinds to a halt for former head of TomkinsCorporate excesses featuring corporate jets, apartments, spouse and housekeeper on company payroll have forced the resignation of Greg Hutchings, the head of UK conglomerate Tomkins. Last week the company drafted in advisers to assess the scale and impact of the improprieties and other irregularities that have taken place. Tomkins’ share price, which has fallen sharply in recent years, retreated further last week. Related posts:No related photos.

The number of suspected and confirmed deaths from coronavirus in Britain has passed the grim milestone of 50,000, the government said on Tuesday.Business Secretary Alok Sharma cited analysis from the Office for National Statistics (ONS), which said 50,107 people had died in the outbreak.The ONS assessed all deaths where COVID-19 was mentioned or suspected on the death certificate up to May 29. Officially, the government only counts the deaths of those who had tested positive for COVID-19. That figure rose to 40,883 on Tuesday, up 286 on Monday.On either measure, the toll is Europe’s worst and the second highest in the world behind the United States, although each country has different reporting methods and lag times. The ONS data also showed that deaths in England and Wales exceeded the average of the last five years by 57,961 in the 10-week period since the outbreak took hold in March.Despite the figures, Sharma said infection and death rates are falling, and the UK lockdown, which has been in force since March, could be eased further. Sharma said that all non-essential shops in England could re-open from June 15, as long as they comply with health and safety guidelines.”This is the latest step in the careful restarting of our economy and will enable high streets up and down the country to spring back to life,” said Sharma.He added that the two-meter social distancing rule in place in the UK would remain when shops re-open, despite speculation it might be relaxed.But he ruled out re-opening pubs and restaurants until July 4 at the earliest.The government is also expected to announce on Wednesday that zoos and safari parks will re-open as part of a gradual easing of the lockdown rules.The announcement was expected to be formerly made by Prime Minister Boris Johnson.A Downing Street official said: “This is by necessity a careful process, but we hope the reopening of safari parks and zoos will help provide families with more options to spend time outdoors, while supporting the industry caring for these incredible animals.” Topics :
