20 year old makes £360k from creating hacking software
A court's heard that a teenager made about £360,000 by creating computer hacking software which cost universities, gaming websites and other businesses millions of pounds. 20 year old Adam Mudd from Hertfordshire, has already admitted offences under the Computer Misuse Act. But the report also acknowledges that teenagers are often looking to secure bragging rights with their friends, rather than for any more malevolent motive.

When will electric vehicles become mainstream?

Women and Money: What will benefit and tax credit changes mean for you?
The start of the new tax year earlier this month didn't only mean changes to taxes and the introduction of a lifetime ISA, it also resulted in some big changes to benefits. Critics say that some of these changes will leave families much worse off. And some of the changes, such as the introduction of the so-called 'rape clause' are pretty controversial.

UK businesses have almost £500bn tied up in excess working capital
British businesses have at least £498bn tied up in excess working capital, which could be used to boost cashflow and growth. A combination of revenue growth, which increases the amount of money tied up in unpaid invoices, and firms strategically building up their inventories ahead of anticipated price hikes, have increased pressure on businesses to have more working capital.
