5 MINUTE BRIEFING.

George back at No.1 GEORGE Michael has posthumously topped the UK album charts with a re-release of his hit album, Listen Without Prejudice Vol 1. His second solo record returns to the summit 27 years after it was first released, following its reissuing alongside the release of a documentary about the Wham! singer's rise to fame.

Listen Without Prejudice Vol.1 got 56,000 physical, digital and streaming equivalent sales - more than 30,000 ahead of Pink with Beautiful Trauma.

PM 'to act on abuse' ALLEGATIONS of sexual harassment at Westminster are "deeply concerning" and any ministers found to have behaved inappropriately would face "serious action" from Theresa May, Downing Street said.

It came after reports that parliamentary staff used WhatsApp to share information on alleged abuse. The group reportedly shared tales of MPs groping staff in lifts and a minister branded "not safe in taxis".

More working nights THE number of people regularly working nights has increased by 260,000 in the past five years.

Britain's late-night workforce has almost reached 3.2 million after a 9% rise, said the TUC. One in eight people now work nights, rising to one in six for black workers, and three out of five night workers are male, the study found.

The North West and Yorkshire have the highest rates of night-shift working, with one in nine workers on night duty.

Cowell in stairs fall SIMON Cowell has returned home after reportedly being taken to hospital after falling down the stairs at home. The X Factor judge's accident happened just one day before the first live show of the current ITV series.

Simon Cowell 'Clocks back' bonus BRITS will be able to enjoy an extra hour under the duvet tomorrow when the clocks go back at 2am - and health and cognitive bonuses, experts say.

The UK will switch from British Summer Time to Greenwich Mean Time, heralding the start of lighter mornings, but darker evenings.

Professor Matthew Walker, director of the Centre for Human Sleep Science at Berkeley, California, said the small boost to sleep could also improve memory and increase learning capacity.
