Thousands danced in the streets of Leicester and millions around the world watched in wonder as the 5,000-1 underdogs sealed a scarcely credible title on Monday. The unthinkable came true thanks to second-place Tottenham Hotspur being held to a 2-2 draw at outgoing champions Chelsea, kicking off a marathon round of celebrations in Leicester. The Thai-owned club's chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, Italian manager Claudio Ranieri and top scorer Jamie Vardy were among those dining out at the city's San Carlo restaurant to celebrate becoming champions for the first time in the Foxes' 132-year history.
The British government on Tuesday ordered an investigation into the circumstances surrounding department store retailer BHS's collapse into administration last week. Business Secretary Sajid Javid has instructed the Insolvency Service to fast-track its inquiry, which will also specifically consider the extent to which the conduct of the directors of BHS led to its insolvency. BHS was placed into administration, a form of creditor protection, by owner Retail Acquisitions on April 25, putting the 88-year-old retailer at risk of disappearing from British shopping streets and putting 11,000 jobs at risk.
