British financial technology company Wise confirmed on Thursday that it plans to list in early July, in a test for London's main market as investor appetite for company floats starts to wane.

Britain said on Thursday that people should not get "carried away" by an incident in which Russia said it fired warning shots at a British destroyer in the Black Sea, adding that such gunnery exercise events were not particularly abnormal. Britain has tried to play down the incident and disputed Russia's account of the incident, saying no warning shots had been fired and that no bombs had been dropped in the path of HMS Defender. "I don't think there is anything in this particular event that people should get too carried away by," Environment Secretary George Eustice told Sky.

India's eight-wicket loss in Southampton prolonged their wait for a first global title since Mahendra Singh Dhoni led them to victory in the 2013 Champions Trophy. It was Virat Kohli's fourth unsuccessful attempt to lead India to an ICC title, the previous being the 2019 One Day World Cup when they lost to New Zealand in the semi-finals in Manchester.
LONDON (Reuters) -Britain wants to allow people to travel abroad again for a foreign holiday but new variants of the novel coronavirus are complicating plans to relax its rules, Environment Secretary George Eustice said. "Well, personally I want us to get back to a position where we can support those who want to travel to do so, nobody likes the draconian restrictions we've had to put in place over this last year." Transport minister Grant Shapps will publish an update on Thursday showing whether any other countries have been added to England's green list for safe travel, Eustice said.
Hong Kong cyber activists are backing up articles by pro-democracy tabloid Apple Daily on censorship-proof blockchain platforms after the newspaper was forced to shut down as it became embroiled in a national security law crackdown. The latest drive to preserve the paper's content comes after activists rushed to upload documentaries by local broadcaster RTHK investigating people in power after the media outlet said it would remove materials older than one year from its social media platforms. Under the national security law, the Hong Kong government can request the blocking or removal of content it deems subversive or secessionist, raising fears over internet freedom in the global financial hub.

The United States and its Pacific allies have concerns that cables laid by China could compromise regional security. Nauru, which has strong ties to U.S. ally Australia, helped scupper a World Bank-led cable tender earlier this year over concerns the contract would be awarded to the former Huawei Marine, now called HMN Tech, after the Chinese firm lodged a bid priced at more than 20% below rivals.
