Also in your business news, Boyzone are looking at investing in a football team.

New laws giving workers the "right to disconnect" are due to be introduced in Australia.

Employees will be given the right to ignore calls and messages outside of work hours, with potential fines for companies that break the rule.

Similar laws are already in place in France and Spain, while Ireland introduced a 'code' for employers here in 2021. 


Boyzone could be about to invest in an English football team.

Non-league club Chorley are in talks with the band to become shareholders and the face of the club.

Ronan Keating, Shane Lynch and Keith Duffy will attend one of their games this Saturday.

Former Westlife member Brian McFadden is also going.

Chorley's CEO says the move has the potential to bring their town into the limelight like never before.
