Jobs are being slashed and legal battles continue at inter-dealer broker Tullett Prebon.

Tullett is also engaged in legal action against rival BGC on various fronts. Tullett appears to have lost at least one round, being fined $0.8m for misusing BGC's data, although there are still battles ahead over who should pay legal fees and over an alleged "raid" that BGC made on Tullett's business back in 2009.
The company says its financial position is "strong" but the market is wary; the stock was down 2.9% at 09:35.
