The US has overtaken Saudi Arabia and Russia to become the world's top energy producer. Plus, as the Tour de France comes to Britain we ask what economic benefits it will bring?
The US has overtaken Saudi Arabia and Russia to become the world's top oil producer, according to a report by the Bank of America. The Tour de France starts in northern England this weekend. We ask what it will the world's most famour cycle race mean for the region's economy.
