All resolutions were passed at the annual general meeting (AGMs) of the insurance group RSA, including the vote on the remuneration report.

In a further blow to the company, voters representing a 33.3m shares were withheld.
Meanwhile, at car company Pendragon's AGM last week, 67% of shareholders who voted were against the remuneration report.
