Bri­tain’s army of ‘twi­light work­ers’ – those with hours out­side of the nor­mal 9-5 rou­tine – con­trib­ute nearly £500mil­lion a year to the econ­omy. A study of more than 2,000 work­ers by mo­bile phone maker Huawei found quar­ter of us now work this way.

Lux­ury car maker As­ton Martin yes­ter­day named former Royal Bank of Scot­land director Penny Hughes as its new chair­man ahead of plans for a stock mar­ket list­ing.

On­line trade di­rec­tory Check­a­trade has ap­pointed Mike Fair­man, cur­rently boss of mo­bile phone firm Gif­f­gaff, as its new chief ex­ec­u­tive.

Primark owner As­so­ci­ated Bri­tish Foods yes­ter­day warned it would take a £20mil­lion hit from the stronger pound as it makes two-thirds of its money out­side the UK. A stronger ster­ling makes those earn­ings worth less when con­verted into pounds. ABF said strong trad­ing at Primark would help off­set dif­fi­cul­ties in its sugar pro­duc­ing arm.
