Oil giant Royal Dutch Shell has announced record profits for a UK company of 12.93 billion.

The figure - which equates to almost 1.5 million an hour - was up nearly a third on last year, when it set a UK record with profits of 17.59 billion US dollars (9.8bn).

Shell made 5.4 billion US dollars (3.04bn) in the last quarter of its financial year, against 5.22 billion US dollars (2.94bn) in the same period last year.
