Good morning all. There's more fallout from the Co-op Bank drugs allegations to discuss this morning, plus the news that Npower has topped the table for customer complaints to energy companies. Get in touch with your thoughts.
0601 CO-OP PROBE
The Co-op has launched an investigation following allegations the former chairman of Co-op Bank bought drugs. All the questions have been on whether Paul Flowers was even suitable for the job in the first place. The former trade minister Lord Digby Jones is on the Today programme in about 15 minutes to give his views.

0610 DODGY DISCOUNTSRadio 5 live
The consumer group Which? says 10% of supermarket discounts are not real. Richard Lloyd from Which? gave these two examples to Radio 5 live: "Products were sold at a higher price for a very short period before being discounted for weeks," and "Yogurt on offer for £4 for two just hours after it was available singly for £1.50."
0611 ENERGY COMPLAINTS
Npower drew more complaints than any other energy company in April to June this year, according to Consumer Focus - that's five times more than the best performing company SSE. Consumer Focus calls that "unacceptable".

Richard Lloyds from Which? also says: "We've got more special offers in this country - if you go around supermarkets in Europe there's nowhere near the number of special offers that you have in this country. About 40% of products at any one time are on some sort of special offer."
More on the scandal surrounding former chairman of Co-op Bank Paul Flowers. Former director general of the CBI, Lord Digby Jones tells Tanya Beckett on Today that more regulation and background checks will not necessarily mean better executive appointments. He thinks independent mentors would be very helpful for top managers.

The Financial Times makes a big splash on its front page with the news that the most recent class of graduates in England is earning 12% less that its counterparts before the financial crisis were at the same stage of their careers, and that they are carrying 60% more debt.
