Bank of England sends misuse of audio feed to markets watchdog for investigation

The Bank of England has referred the misuse of its press conference audio feed to markets watchdog the Financial Conduct Authority, a spokesman for the central bank said on Thursday.

The central bank had earlier admitted a rogue supplier had been misusing feeds of its press briefings, allowing high-speed traders access to market-sensitive information seconds before rivals, following a report in the Times newspaper.
