    Turkey's military pension fund has entered into exclusive talks for the takeover of British Steel.
    Sky News first revealed that Ataer, a unit of Oyak which looks after the pension pots of Turkey's military personnel, had entered into exclusive talks with advisers to the government who have been running the auction of the ailing steelmaker on behalf of the Official Receiver.

    Best of luck to them. British Steel was sold by Tata for £1 in 2016.

    British Steel, whose largest manufacturing site is in Scunthorpe, collapsed into insolvency in May after the government chose not to give £30m to the company under its then-owner, Greybull Capital.

    That's about 0,5% of what's been spent preparing for NoDeal.
