Hunt lands £15m payout as NHS crisis deepens

    Jeremy Hunt, the Health Secretary, is to land more than £15m from an education business he helped set up, even as he fights an increasingly intense political battle over the NHS’s latest winter crisis. Sky News has learnt that Hotcourses, a listings service set up by Mr Hunt and his business partner Mike Elms in 1996, is expected to announce this week that it has been sold for between £30m and £35m. A deal was said by a legal source to be close to being signed on Sunday evening. Filings at Companies House suggest that Mr Hunt owns approximately 48% of the shares in Hotcourses, meaning a takeover worth £35m would yield a payday for the cabinet minister worth £16.8m. The latest register of MPs' interests says only that he holds more than 15% of the business. The prospective ...

UK steps up fight against IS

    Two million people were freed from Islamic State rule in 2016, the Defence Secretary has said. Sir Michael Fallon said substantial progress has been made in driving the terror group, which is also known as Daesh, out of Iraq. The city of Mosul, Islamic State's last stronghold in Iraq, is expected to fall to local forces this year. US-backed militias from the Syrian Democratic Forces are also encircling the city of Raqqa, which is Islamic State's de-facto capital. Estimates suggest that about 25,000 IS fighters were killed over the course of 2016, and the group is now in control of less than 10% of Iraqi territory. Officials say IS fighters have become increasingly disorganised recently - with militants resorting to desperate tactics such as hiding in hospitals, and burning...
