Everything's going up on the News Review with Kevin Pratt.
On today's news round-up, financial broadcaster of the year Georgie Frost and Kevin Pratt from Money Supermarket go over the big stories of the week so far. And today everything is on the rise, as rents across the UK went up further in June, British employees face an extra seven years of saving before retirement, car insurance premiums have risen by £115, and long-haul flights from Gatwick rose 24 per cent. The only thing going down this week is the amount people spent on the high street last month. For this and more, this is the Consuming Issues News Review.

Consuming Issues: How can co-working space help new businesses flourish? Listen here to Olly Olsen from The Office Group
When you are just starting out in business, flexible co-working spaces can be the best environment to keep costs down and to help businesses to flourish. Fewer desks is one way to cut overheads - or for some of them to become hot desks - to be shared in different parts of the day buy different staff working opposite ends of the day. But that means increasingly many workers have no official home - which can be disconcerting.
