FTSE suffers biggest loss since 9/11
The FTSE 100 fell 5.5 percent on Monday, suffering its largest one-day loss since September 11, 2001 as the index tracked global markets lower on deepening fears of a possible U.S. recession.
The FTSE 100 closed down 323.5 points at 5,578.2, its lowest close since June 2006 and wiping nearly 77 billion pounds from the value of its constituent stocks.
The blue-chip index has now lost more than 13 percent since the start of the year.

Parliament challenges Brown on EU treaty
Parliament began a lengthy process of scrutiny of the European Union reform treaty on Monday with members of Prime Minister Gordon Brown's own Labour party vowing to force him to hold a referendum.
The process began with a heated debate in parliament and will continue in parliamentary committees for six weeks.
Supporters of a referendum had hoped to embarrass Brown by voting on an amendment on Monday calling for a national plebiscite but the speaker decided no vote would be held on the rebel amendment.

PM hails Anglo-Indian partnership
Prime Minister Gordon Brown is flying back to the UK after a two-day visit to India which he said had boosted Britain's trade, security and cultural links with the emerging economic power.
Mr Brown used the trip to give strong public backing to India's claim to a permanent seat on the United Nations Security Council, as well as improved representation in "radically reformed" international institutions.

Diana crash driver 'over the limit'
Henri Paul may have drunk at least a bottle and a half of wine before taking the wheel in the doomed car journey that killed Diana, Princess of Wales, her inquest has been told.
In the hours before the fatal crash Mr Paul could have had up to eight alcoholic drinks, leaving him with blood alcohol levels almost twice the drink-drive limit for UK motorists and more than three times for French.

Security probe after data scandal
An inquiry into military security has been launched after the Government admitted the unencrypted personal details of hundreds of thousands of people had been missing for more than a year.
Defence Secretary Des Browne told MPs a Navy laptop stolen in October 2006 contained most of the same data that was on a computer taken from an official's car in Birmingham this month.
