- Stock and inventory systems provider Christie said it had tapped a UK government-backed Covid-19 loans scheme.

The company said it had accepted an offer of a coronavirus large business interruption loan scheme (CLBILS) loan of £6m.

The loan would be additional to Christe's existing bank facilities and cash resources.

'The new loan is a precautionary and prudent measure ready to assist with working capital and operational changes in response to the disruption caused by the Covid19 pandemic as the group's businesses re-establish more normalised trading' it said.
