  • Vodka firm loses valuable iceberg water in apparent heist Link
    BBC Business Sat 16 Feb 2019 10:09

    A Canadian vodka distiller has lost 30,000 litres of valuable iceberg water in what appears to be a heist.

    Iceberg Vodka CEO David Meyers says he is mystified as to who - or why - someone would have stolen the water.

    The Royal Canadian Mounted Police say someone made away with the liquid - enough to fill a tractor-trailer tanker - from a warehouse in the historic community of Port Union, Newfoundland.

    The water is valued at between C$9,000 ($6,775; £5,200) and C$12,000.

    The CEO of the Newfoundland-based distiller told the BBC that the water was discovered missing on Monday after their facility manager found one of the tanks had been completely drained over the weekend.

    A day after Amazon announced it would abandon controversial plans to build a new campus in New York City, the neighbourhood selected for the expansion was still in shock.

    At Manducatis Rustica, an Italian restaurant on the local high street that was established in 1977, people were in mourning.

    At the closest subway stop, there was a sense of relief.

    The divided opinions reflected the fierce debate stirred by Amazon's plan, which would have added 25,000 jobs over 10 years to a waterfront district in Queens already grappling with fallout from years of rapid change.

    "From a local standpoint, I'm happy," said Chad Pierce, 35, who has lived in the neighbourhood for nine years.

    BBC Business Fri 15 Feb 2019 12:59

    Metro Bank has taken top spot in an official survey of customers' satisfaction with their banks, with the Royal Bank of Scotland ranked bottom.

    Despite Metro's share price having been hit, in part, by errors in the way it accounted for some of its lending, the bank overtook First Direct to go top.

    Some 83% of its personal customers said they would recommend the bank to their family and friends.

    The rankings are published every six months by the UK's competition body.

    Banks must prominently display the results in branches, on websites and apps, with the aim to encourage competition on customer service.
