TESCO: Online shoppers at Tesco TSCO.L will be able to order ketchup and Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO ) in refillable bottles as part of a pilot service by Britain's biggest supermarket chain.

GSK: An independent panel to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Tuesday voted in favour of approving GlaxoSmithKline's GSK.L experimental treatment for a common form of blood cancer. BT: BT BT.L said it estimated that a ban on Huawei's equipment in its 5G networks would cost it no more than the 500 million pounds it had earmarked.
