A woman claims she couldn't rent a property - because she didn't have a man. Lorna Pearce, 28, went into a letting agency to ask about a city maisonette - but she was shocked when staff said she couldn't have it. She claims that SAMS Accommodation, in Plymouth, Devon, told her she would need a man to move into the property with her, due to a request from the landlord. SAMS Accommodation have pledged to investigate but deny that this Lorna was turned down for this reason.

Black Wednesday, cyber Monday, take-back Tuesday… now it’s downgrade Friday. A spate of UK mid-cap stocks were downgraded today as analysts fired off Sell ratings like a politician furiously tabling Brexit amendments. Purplebricks, the colourful online estate agency, was the hardest hit, with shares falling to the bottom of the stock market as Berenberg invoked Greek mythology in a note entitled “The Icarus of Solihull” to warn the purple one had “flown too close to the sun”. The business, still reeling from a February profit warning, took a bath after it was reduced from a Buy in the broker’s 75-page analysis of UK estate agents which rated rival Countrywide a Buy.

Picture: Народно събрание Sofia. Coalition partner NFSB has asked the Prosecutor General to probe how Minister of Tourism Nikolina Angelkova acquired her properties, the party’s deputy leader, Boris Yachev, said to reporters, quoted by Focus News Agency.
