Liz Truss has sacked Kwasi Kwarteng as chancellor as part of a major U-turn on her economic strategy. The PM will hold a press conference later today where she is expected to reverse her pledge to scrap a planned rise in corporation tax. The committee investigating the 2021 US Capitol riots has voted to subpoena Donald Trump, meaning he is legally compelled to testify before Congress. The former president has labelled the committee a “giant scam” and “total BUST”, adding that the ruling will “further divide our country which, by the way, is doing very badly”. Thirty-nine years after it last produced electricity, Battersea Power Station has reopened today as a luxury leisure and living complex, following a 10-year, £9bn renovation project. Inside are 100 shops and 255 homes, with a six-bedroom penthouse costing £18m.
