Total rejigs UK business

Changes are being made to the structure of the business behind Lindsey Oil Refinery following Total's worldwide reorganisation of its downstream business in 2012 into two new divisions: Refining & Chemicals and Marketing & Services.

Total UK will transfer the UK refining business and the associated logistics infrastructure to Total Lindsey Oil Refinery Limited (Total LOR), which is 100% owned by Total Group, in the second quarter of 2013.

Rapper in forecourt fight

NDubz rapper Dappy has been found guilty of affray after a brawl at a petrol station, in which others involved suffered broken teeth, and a broken nose. Following the week-long trial at Guildford Crown Court, Dappy was also found guilty of a charge of assault by beating, which involved him spitting at a man.

Judge Neil Stewart adjourned the case for reports to be prepared on Dappy and another defendant Kieron Vassell.
