Rolls-Royce is to give more than 14,000 staff a £2,000 one-off cash payment to help them cope with the biggest squeeze on incomes since the 1950s.
 
The aero-engine maker told workers that the payment would be for around 11,000 factory floor staff, mainly based at its Derby and Bristol sites, and around 3,000 junior managers.
 
The factory floor staff will also get a 4 per cent pay rise for the year, backdated to March.
 
Rolls-Royce is the latest company to help to its employees as they face inflation at a 40-year high of 9 per cent, with the Bank of England predicting that it will rise above 11 per cent later in the year.

UK & European stocks moved higher, continuing a recovery seen at the start of the week.

U.S. stocks rose as traders returned from a long weekend, with equities looking to steady following the S&P 500's worst week since March 2020.

Oil prices rose almost $2 on high summer fuel demand while supplies remain tight because of sanctions on Russian oil after its invasion of Ukraine.

Gold priced lower.
