Morrisons has beaten the billionaire brothers behind Asda in a battle to take control of failed convenience store chain McColl’s.
 
The supermarket giant, which is owned by the US private equity firm Clayton, Dubilier & Rice, has seen off competition from petrol station operator EG Group after a dramatic bidding war over the weekend.
 
The deal, which will be structured as a pre-pack administration, will ensure all of McColl’s stores and workforce is preserved.
 
McColl’s, which has a debt pile of around £170m, was left teetering on the brink of collapse after it fell into administration on Friday, putting 16,000 jobs at risk.
 
UK & European stocks fell to two-month lows as global investors fled risk assets en masse due to fears over inflation.
 
U.S. stocks fell to extend last week's losses, as investors looked ahead to more data this week on inflation and earnings to gauge the strength of the economy and corporate profits as the Federal Reserve continues to tighten monetary policy.
 
Oil prices slipped, weighed down by a strong dollar and demand concerns on the back of continued coronavirus lockdowns in China, the world top oil importer.
 
Gold prices retreated as a firmer dollar and elevated U.S. Treasury yields weighed on the appeal of non-yielding bullion.
